Hello there! How are you? First of all, my name is Daniel and I live in Australia. I joined this forum back in 2008 but for some reason I only viewed a few threads and then never came back. I'm still not sure why that happened . I'm only young but the knowledge I have on animals is great. Many people come to me for advice and I'm always giving advice out on a regular basis. I'm not sure how I remember the needs for many animals but I wish my maths was as good . My family know that every time I go online or get a book that it has something about keeping wildlife, particularly natives. I volunteer at a wildlife park and love it! It gives me a chance to spend time with the animals I usually don't keep. I live out on a small farm of 108acres and have many pets. I have a love of natives and own quite a lot of reptiles and other natives. Although I still love my chickens . The land was cleared along time ago and we are currently revegetating it back to its natural state. Its been happening faster since a local sustainable group gave us some money for more trees. To date we have planted roughly 600 trees (i think ) and I will be planting another 100 this weekend. My other interest include native plants, succulents, photography and sport. Here is a link to a few of my photos http://www.redbubble.com/people/looneydaniel/art Now onto my chickens! Recently we finally got some chickens, again. 5 Isa browns. They are such a lovely bunch and quite tame, they will happily sit on my lap and eat some meal worms or cheese . Although they keep on thinking my eyes look like something they can peck . They are still getting used to their home atm and in a couple of weeks they should be free ranging . I used to have 13 chickens when I was younger and no I'm hoping to get more. This year I should be getting some silkies, plymouth rocks and maybe a few frizzles. Will also be getting a pair of peafowls and one emu And some kangaroos I think that will do for now, if you have any questions feel free to ask! Daniel Cheese?
