    I love this forum, I've been reading here everyday for the past few weeks. My husband and I are very keen to start our journey towards being more self sufficient. One of the things we are looking at getting are chickens, first for eggs only and then perhaps also breeding meat chickens. And a lot of other animals.

    We plan to get our first chickens in a few months, at the start of spring here (September).

    Hello and :welcome from Adelaide. We're due for getting new chicks this spring too, exciting stuff! Good luck with your self sufficient goals...do you know BYC's sister site SufficientSelf? You might enjoy it there too! See you round :frow (Come join the Aussie thread in Where am I, where are you)

    I'm on a couple of the other sites, not as fast-paced as BYC, but still a lot of fun. :lol:
