Hi there, I'm a newbie not only to chickens, but also to online forums. I have a lot of learning to do in both departments, so please be patient with me!! I live in the Mallee in North West Victoria, Australia. We own a small farm with a growing menagerie of family pets, to which we have recently added some lovely chickens (5 Lohmann Browns and 2 Naked Neck Frizzles) I'm totally amazed by the different personalities already showing in these beautiful girls and wondering how I have not welcomed these entertaining little creatures into my life sooner. I look forward to learning as much as possible from all of you fellow chicken people. Thanks for having me.
