Scotland
I've worked in hatcheries, broilers, broiler breeders, pullet rearing, laying hens in all areas, battery, barn and free range egg production.
My hobbies have all been animal/bird based. I've bred and exhibited most animals except dogs.For example budgies, canaries, rabbits,cavies (guinea pigs) rats, mice and gerbils.
I now breed Japanese quail, Corturnix Japonica,an easy bird to keep in your garden requiring very little space, time and effort.In return they produce lovely eggs and meat.I'm also an active member of the quail forum http://www.quailforum.com/show more
