    Hello All,

    My partner and two daughters live in a town in regional Australia, on a largish block, which we are slowly converting into a productive space, with veg gardens, fruit trees, and now chickens! After spending 11 years building our chook shed (we were distracted) we've finally adopted 4 lovely hens. A RIR (Scarlett O'Hara), French Maran x (Brigitte Bardot), Bantam of unknown heritage (Queenie) and a Barnevelder/Silver Dorking x (Marley). All are gorgeous, and we are completely smitten.

    Very glad to have found BackYard Chickens - what a wonderful resource!

    Lorena

    Hi, Lorena, welcome to BYC. That was a long 'distraction' on that coop building. [​IMG]

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. It's very nice to meet you Lorena. Eleven years working on your coop proves you are not a quitter. BYC has a large Aussie community and a dandy thread called "Australia, six states and one funny little Island.
