    Hi all,

    My name's Angie, fairly new around here, but have been reading the forums for a few weeks and getting some excellent tips from you all! So thank you!

    I live in Newcastle and about two months ago we bought four buff leghorn pullets who have been a wonderful addition to the family. No eggs as yet, but I hopefully soon. They're a little spoilt - we're in the process of building them a new super-coop and I've been working on some interesting and occasionally elaborate mash mixes for them - my partner thinks they eat better than we do some nights!

    They should be about 25 weeks old, though from looking at other people's pictures they seem a bit younger and I think one of them's actually a rooster. I will be posting a couple of photos in the 'What breed or gender' forum for some help on that soon.

    I am very excited to be looking after chickens again. We had some bantam hens when I was growing up, as a three year old apparently I would get into their cage and try and catch them.

    Cheers,

    Angie

    Thank you both!!

    Fierlin - I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone say NSW trains were any good at all! Enjoy your trip, I grew up in Sydney, so will actually be back there myself this weekend to see my family.

    They're better than Adelaide's, for sure. :lol: And take the train for half an hour here and you're at the end of the line, Sydney trips are much more interesting. :p

    Ah, who knows, we might cross on the street and not even know it. :lol: I love Sydney, my favourite place in Australia by far.
