    hi all.
    Names tam, living on the Gold Coast of Australia. Had chooks a few years ago in a suburan back yard, but just made the leap to chook keeping on acreage (and all the risks that come with it)
    I have 8 big girls all relatively young (but laying)
    5 I got as a flock
    2 leghorns , Freda and flop
    2 Isa browns beaky and Doris
    1 Australop. Squawk
    And 3 Rhode Island Red Cross austrolorp I introduced a couple of weeks ago: France next, boss girl (named as she decided she was in charge) and red.

    I also got my daughter 3 silkie and one silky x Arubans chicks for her birthday at the sme time...so chickens everywhere.

    Tam
