    I thought I had a profile here already but apparently I don't lol, so I thought I'd make one and introduce myself.

    I'm Jules, my husband and I live in Australia with our 4 parrots (2 Alexandrines Adria and Avi and 2 breeding Green Cheek Conures Rory and Tika) and our 5 chooks (Silkie x Polish Bantam Henrietta, Araucana Bantam Daphne, 2 x Bonds Blacks Betsy and Bea and a Hyline Brown Ginger).

    The girls free range our backyard all day every day and are the sweetest things ever. We currently have eggs coming out of our ears since all 5 of them are laying an egg a day, even Hettie now who's nearly 6, hasn't laid in 2 years yet decided over Christmas to start laying again!

    We're also planning on getting 2-3 quail to put in the bottom on an aviary we've almost finished for our 2 Conures, it's floor space is around 2.5m x 1.5m (I think?) so they should have plenty of space in there, I want to put in some plants and stuff for the quail to hide in.

    Thanks for having me :)

    As sourland suggested, please do drop into the Aussie thread and say G’Day, you will be welcome: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...-that-funny-little-island/32160#post_17938426

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
