My family and I first started with chickens about 10 years ago. Currently we have a mix of Australorps, Light Sussex, Plymouth Rock, Leghorn and two bantams totalling 19 including 6 chicks at the moment. Our youngest is keen on doing eggs for sale to friends so that will be expanding by 10 or more of whatever egg breed she settles on.

We have quite a few other animals as well: sheep, budgies, lorikeets, guinea pigs and zebra finches. Being on a small farm we raise the sheep for meat and also do batches of meat chickens with some neighbours through the year. The chooks are mainly for eggs and bug patrol as they wander around the yard and fig enclosure.

I have found often when googling information about chickens that much of the information that I was looking for is on here so it seemed logical to join and hopefully learn and share.

I would love to see pictures of your guinea pigs! I have one myself, they are so adorable!
