Hi from Murrumbateman Australia

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Matty-Aus-1991, Apr 10, 2016.

  1. Hi there

    I have just joined, I live in a small town near Canberra the capital of Australia.

    I have 9 chickens which are 6 weeks old, I have 5 Australorps, 1 Blue Laced Gold Wyandotte, 1 Plymouth Rock, 1 Buff Bantam and 1 Columbian Bantam cross.

    Yesterday I moved them into their new home which they seem to be loving, they are such inquisitive little things.


    After reading hours of pages on BYC I thought I would finally join :).

    Anyway I thought I would come and say hello

  2. Alright Mat, [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]

    BYC has a very informative Learning Center [​IMG]

    Wish you well with your new flock [​IMG]

    G'day - very nice to meet you Matt - welcome to Backyard Chickens. BYC has a large Aussie community and a grand thread called "Australia, six states and one funny little island."

    You will find Aussies throughout the BYC site, it is a lot of help for example if you need a certain medication for the birds - the name for it in USA may be quite different than what it is called in Australia. There will be folks that can tell you personally what to ask for.
