    My name is Rick and I'm an American living in Australia. Have decided to raise chickens for eggs and meat. I have started to build my chicken coop and it's turning out to be quite a project. I took the idea from the coop on BYC. Although with my own touches of course. Been wanting to to this for sometime and finally taken the plunge. I wont be getting chickens until spring (over here, thats around August/September) as I think it would be better to start off when it warms up.
    Looking forward to meeting lots of new people here.[​IMG]

    Hello and :welcome

    Nice coop. That scene looks very Australian. :lol: Where abouts are you? I live in Adelaide, although I'm originally from the UK.
    We got the second group of our chickens in June, so I think you're very wise to wait till spring. :lau

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
