post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Had my chickens for aprox. 5 weeks purchased them as 8 week old pullets from 2 different poultry farmers in Victoria, Australia.

my chickens are

2x White Leghorns hens

3x black Australorp hens

1x ISA Brown hen

 

 

not having any real issues except very high food consumption, almost gone through 1st 20kg bag of chicken feed

things im looking at improving are the "water feeder", modifying it too automatically refill to full level from water stored in rainwater tank. And possibly get a larger grain/pellet food dispenser as refilling it every couple days is a little annoying.

G'day, and welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You've got a batch of egg laying machines there. You should get loads of large eggs from those girls. :o) X2 on Yorkshire coop; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
