  1. I am on the Gold Coast, Australia. I started with my backyard chickens 2 years ago. At the moment I have 2 white Silkies and 2 Hybrids. Built my own coop and will upload some photos.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Love your avatar pic! I started out my chicken adventures with a couple of hybrids and they were fab layers. Looking forward to seeing your coop pics. We have a coop contest running now that you could enter ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...-and-run-page-contest-winter-spring-2016/0_30
    How to enter and create a coop page are all in the first post. You may need a few more posts to create a page but once you have them I'm sure you will be good to go.

    Please do pop by the Australia thread too for others in your area ~

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Hi;

    Glad you are here. As you can tell from my photo it is a little cooler here. Chickens are so adaptable!

  7. Thanks for all the welcomes. I'm sorting my photos out from the past 2 years, hope to get them up soon.

  8. Hi, Whereabouts in the Great White North are you? I spent a year travelling across Canada in a van coast to coast in the early 80's. We stopped to visit some friends in North Battleford, Saskatchewan and ended up staying there for several months through the winter. Still in touch with them on Facebook 35 years later. Fond memories.
