Wow, it's been a long time since I was one here...
Welcome, ChookyDeb! To be honest, it takes me a long time to get to Sydney, but I have quite a few relatives there - my grandfather's from Sydney originally and 2 of my mother's siblings and their children live in Penrith. Can you introduce your poultry to us, too, please?
Hey, any reason you're heading over there, OtherRachel (Fierlin)? I know it's school holidays then, huh?
And congratulations on your new ducks, Ducky!
About the wierd poo thing... I have no idea. I never really pay attention to their poo but it changes a lot, depending on what they've eaten (just like people poo). And this entire paragraph is a little disgusting, so I'll finish it now.
Well, an update on my quails: they're a week old today! Can you believe that? It seems like I only just put the eggs in the incubator. Seriously, quails grow so fast! My little peeps have just about quadrupled in size, and they're pretty well-feathered already, their wings and their upper backs and some of their chests. I'm amazed at how quickly they're growing up.
