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

    As you have already received some good starting points from CTKen, I will just send best wishes to you for the build and your transition into being a chicken parent.

    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. 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]

    Hi; Due to coop size I'm very limited in size of my flock, but I'm leaning towards a mix of RIR, buff orpington, and barred rock. Thanks for the welcome.
