    Hello there everyone! My name is Jack, and I am from Queensland in Australia. I have 5 chickens (1 Barred Rock, 3 Australorps, and 1 Barnevelder). In Queensland were are less concerned about foxes and more concerned about pythons, so I’m right now in the process of designing a new coop that is more secure against snakes and that can be positioned so that my chickens can have access to more land to forage upon. I have just over an acre and most of that is rainforest, yet they do not have access to it very often so that will be a priority. I will be posting more threads as the project continues, see you all soon,

    Jack

    G'Day from FNQ Jack :frow Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.
