    Hello [​IMG]

    Decided to finally join after lurking for a while. I live in Australia and I have 6 chickens. Three black australorps and 3 lohmann browns. They are lovely lovely things! I had them from a week old and they are now 20 weeks old. One has been laying every day for a week and another started laying today. I've never had chickens before so this has been a bit of an adventure but all I can think is I wish I had started sooner.

    Here's a pic of my girls :)
