    hi there to all across the big wide open globe. Weather over here in the land of oz is pretty cold and windy( my girls don't seem to mind though). We just had 3 weeks of rain and they had had enough of it (as we all had) and did there best to keep warm and dry. I went to look at some new Australorps today and not to sure how some 12 weekers will go with my (more mature ladies) as we are new to introducing newies into our pen. Any ideas how to make it a smooth introduction for everyone involved. Hope to here from you all. Have a great day. SEEYA MATE,ha ha.
