    Hello all!

    I am Sam and i hail from sunny brisbane in Australia!

    Ive kept chickens back when i was younger but had to give it all up after moving to the city.. So now that im back out in the sticks, its time to get my chook on!

    Im in the process of acquiring some ex-battery hens to live out their life with me (and hopefully they wont do TOO much damage to the vegie patch :p ). I have 2 cortunix quails currently and room for many many more!

    I also have a budgie and 4 cockatiels to keep me busy.

    I look forward to having some nice chats as you all seem pretty down to earth and caring about your livestock!

    [​IMG] Sam glad you could join us. There is an Australian thread on BYC called "Six states and one funny little island." Some also belong to the Emu threads.

    Hi and :welcome

    I'm from Adelaide, great to see more Aussies here :D
    That's nice, that you're going to keep battery hens. It's nice that the birds get a chance to live a normal life. :p

    Enjoy the site!

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Ex battery hens are lovely. They are so sweet and make wonderful pets, but I won't trust them with the veggie garden if I were you!
