    I'm a 21 year old from the country who is starting to raise poultry again.

    I've had a little experience with chickens (chooks, as we call them) from having egg-laying hens as a kid, but now I am hoping to start my own flock from scratch!

    So far I only have Davey the Isa Brown rooster and Goliath the Embden goose, both hatched from the same incubator 5 months ago.

    I'm looking forward to reading through all of the great info and tips here for building some proper chicken coops and acquiring some healthy hens.

    Nice to meet everybody! :)
