Hello!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi there frow.gif I'm an Aussie mum to three small humans and carer to 3 fish, 2 cats and most recently, 15 coturnix quail which are so far a funny little bunch to watch. I've always loved chickens with my dear Chooka as my first pet when I was younger - she had serious sass but was super affectionate, but currently renting and not having a great deal of space means I turned to quail keeping to fill the void. Surprised so far at how different it is to keeping chooks but I find great peace in trudging outside in the early cold hours of the morning with a cup of tea and watching them do their funny little things. Looking forward to surrounding myself - at least online - with people who get this whole addicted to chickens (and quails) thing!

And just in case you were wondering... It's genetic.



Yes, that a little chicken in the wheel barrow. Don't worry, no chickens were harmed in the taking of this photo.

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
