I have been a visitor to this site for a few months now - trawling to find answers to my chicken questions. I spend so much time here I figured I should join. I live with my (very understanding) husband in the beautiful Northern Rivers area of NSW, Australia. Last October I took on four battery rescue hens (Isa Browns) - we got them for the eggs and then quickly fell in love with them - it was my first time with chickens. One of them has since died (worn out I think) but in the meantime I acquired 3 more hens ( 2 Sussex - one while, one black; and a Plymouth Rock). My first post yesterday was to enquire if the Plymouth Rock was actually a rooster - unfortunately, yes, he is.
Anyway, this is a great site and I'm happy to be on board - I have a lot to learn - my husband thinks I worry too much about them!!
In advance, thanks everyone
