Hi from South Australia

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all. New to this site and the whole back yard chicken thing in general!
We adopted 5 hens and a rooster during last years bushfires to help out a friend.
During that year we've experienced the joys of watching eggs hatch and chicks being raised and also the sadness of discovering a fox has raided the pen.
Having a few issues with the flock we have now and hoping to learn a lot more about looking after them.

Hi and welcome to BYC. In addition to the learning centre, theres a Predators and Pests forum that you may wish to look at.

You also have a country thread called "Australia, six states that funny little island" that you may wish to join and chat with members local to you.

 

All the best

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

Please check out the predator threads on BYC for advice on preventing  another attack.  You may also want to ask others on the Aussie thread  for suggestions. Are you allowed to have  electrified fencing around your coop/run?    That can be helpful or  else a brace of guardian dogs to  handle the bad guys.
