    G’Day from down under sjthawk [​IMG] Welcome!

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    You might want to say hello on your local thread:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. 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]
