    Hello everyone!
    I live in Australia and have recently got two Isla brown chickens. After a few days they both became sick I was devistated. I started researching possible causes and treated them with antibiotics and they have both picked up and are now eating and drinking well. I decided to join this site as while I was researching posts from this site helped me so much. Looking forward to chatting and learning from people more experienced than me
    Regards Mandy

    G'Day from FNQ Mandy :frow Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. 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.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also visit the Aussie Thread and pop in and say hello.
