Yes, I'm relatively new to chickens - visited my daughter and son-in-law in Pasadena last year, who have chickens, and that absolutely fired me to get my own. My four ladies, (cross breeds, nothing fancy here) are called Henrietta, Ruby, Henny Panny and Sunday Roast. We all live on the banks of the River Murray in rural South Australia, and are enjoying the end of a 10 yr drought, with high water for the first time in years. I use Nite Guards on my enclosure, to keep my girls safe at night, but during the day they forage through the bush. They are the best waste management scheme I have ever encountered, and give me eggs in return! Looking forward to talking to other chicken minded people.
