    Hi everyone!

    My name is Hayley and I am a Brit currently living in Australia. Hopefully towards the end of the year my partner and I will be in a position to finally (after years of wanting them!) where we can get chooks.
    Still doing my research and I think I can never learn enough! Ideally I'd love some bantam breeds, either Pekins, Wynadottes or Seabrights, depending on how easier it is to find certain breeds over here. It's proving quite tricky trying to track down breeders/suppliers.
    Can't wait to get stuck into the forums and learning lots more.

    There is a very nice BYCER on here Teila (Bambrook bantams) that has a thread called "I built a bridge." if you put that in the search box it will come up. She is another Aussie, and I believe she could point you in the right direction.
