    so, i'm a pure Aussie, and a total animal lover!
    so, i'm 15, and my aim is to become a livestock veterinarian when i finish school...

    so, i have a few animals:
    3 isa brown hens
    1 white leghorn head
    1 hen that i am trying to identify via this site
    2 mini foxy/jack russel dogs (1 female, 1 male)
    2 guinea pigs (male)
    1 male rabbit

    and thats it at the moment...
    i do, however, look after, train and care for 2 dairy cross (1 is a Jersey, the other a fresian) steers... they are my life - they are basically my children!

    i have competed in 1 beef cattle event -- the 15 years junior paraders in 2011 - i did not win, nor place in this event as i wasn't experienced enough... i also entered the grand parade in 2011...

    i'm actually looking at buying a Campine hen to show at all the local shows...

    got any tips on this site, or on Campine hens, or poultry showing??
    i would love to hear them! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! You should check out the Aussie thread if you haven't already. They probably could help you in locating a SQ Campine. [​IMG] So glad you joined!

    unfortunatly, i think i'll have to give up on looking for Campine hens, because i can't travel the 2 hours to purchase it...
    i have found some sebright hens close to home, and hope to go and have a look at them this week!
