Hello from New Zealand!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I recently inherited some hens and their chicks and I could not have gotten this far (or kept them alive) if it wasn't for this site - I have used it for almost everything regarding my hens and other various feathered friends and thought it was about time I signed up. 

I have found that most of the information/advice was in "US speak" so after months of converting to "Kiwi-talk" I thought I may be able to help others in this part of the world needing direction. So hello from New Zealand!! 

 

I am a mum to 10 boys, and 3 girls (all have left home), wife and entrepreneur - I run my own company and in my 'spare' (lol) time I am a pretend farmer with my (ALL rescues) 2 Barbary Doves, 2 Japanese Quail, 6 Chinese Quail, 5 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Flemish Giants, 2 Wild Bunnies, a baby pheasant, 2 kittens, a dog & a husband - who all live in the house, except the hens and occasionally the husband ;-)

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to hear that you are building your US - Kiwi translation repository! I get a little lost sometimes (thats nothing new I should add) with terminologies  - its all part of the fun of BYC! Thankfully, there's almost no rugby talk here, (so there's limited opportunity for gloating :) )  which is a blessing cos I'm English and the less said about the World Cup, the better! ;)

 

All the best

Hi and welcome. :)  I haven't come across many Kiwis (yet!) but there are quite a few of us Aussies.
