Hello from Western Australia!
Got two 12 week old pullet hens a week ago for my DD's birthday. They’re Australorps.
We live in urban setting, the city council allows up to 6 hens per household in this area. Just 2 is enough as a complete beginner.
The girls get really excited about sprouted wheat, but indifferent to dry mealworms or live earthworms. Strange, I thought they’re supposed to go nuts for them.
Not sure about their names yet, as DD (4 years) keeps changing them...
Glad to have found this forum, will be learning a lot from all the friendly people in here :)
