Hi everyone, I haven't got around to introducing myself, though I have been on the forum for about 11 weeks, ever since purchasing three peeping fluffy things in a shoebox late last year. My life has changed. Never had chickens before and am totally in love with these hilarious creatures. I live in Melbourne, Australia on a suburban block with an overgrown garden which is now a chicken paradise for my girls. I raised them for 6 weeks in a brooder box in my office... here they are asleep on my husband's lap (Mabel, Ethel and Princess Glenda): And here is their palatial enclosure: They also get free-range of the front garden: Oh, so beautiful! Thanks for all the help so far on this site. Its been brilliant!
