Hi I'm Christie, I live in Queensland Australia with my hubby and 3 kids, we've had chookies before and I found this site a wealth of Info but I never joined. unfortunately over time our 4 girls were killed by our dogs pup (in play but I'm sure you all know what dogs get like once they've found a "game") Any who since then we bought a house and then baby number 3 arrived 3 months ago, so while I was recovering from c section I see on facebook a lady advertising day old chicks, I sent a pic to my husband he texts back ok. Then I see another person with chicks the same age and I just want them all!!! So a month later we welcomed my mix bag of chicks. They are about 11 weeks now so I've been trolling the forums for ideas on a permanent dog proof coop and run, pups are gone now but not going to risk it!! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and sharing some of the quirky things the ladies get up to!
