Hi everyone, just joined the forum. :icon_smile:

I live in Ireland and have a 30 acre smallholding, currently have horses, dogs and cats, but nearly ready to add chickens and goats. :icon_smile:

Hi BG, welcome to Ish. :wave:

Sounds lovely. I'm working on my OH re having chickens - he's not keen on the idea. But I'm patient. :lol:

Hiya! Chickens are on my "to get" list, too...

What does your name mean? I have the suspicion that there's something green in there... (I know that "glas" is green in Scotland!)

Thanks for the welcome :iconbiggrin:

Baois Glas means Greens Folly :iconbiggrin: The name is deliberately intended to be a double meaning on Folly as in being a pretty place to dwell and also an act of recklessness on our part. The Green part is our family name. :iconbiggrin:

We had chickens before we moved over and they are great fun, can't wait to have some again, just got to get the fences up now.
