Just a note to say hello. I have been a chicken mum for the past eight weeks now and I love every minute of it. Well, almost every minute. I am not too keen on mucking out the henhouse in the pouring rain, but luckily in Victoria, Australia it doesn't rain all that often. I have two Isa Browns (Fiona & Hazel) and two Silkies (Clover & Daisy). All but Hazel have recently started laying, now the wait is on for her to join the laying club as well. I am looking forward to being a part of this forum!
