    Hi there, my name's Helen and I've been raising chickens for less than a year, I often check with BYC when I need some advice so I've decided to get up some courage and join this group of lovely people!

    I'm from New Zealand and the chooks I own were purchased from other people raising chickens in their back yards. I'm not sure what kinds they are but I've given them names based on their personalities ^_^ if anyone has an idea of what breeds they are please feel free to let me know :)

    Hello Helen and :welcome

    I live in Australia, so not too far from you.
    The one at the back of the third picture (Poncy) looks like my chickens. We have red sex links.

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
