    Hi Guys
    I am obviously new here, and new to the chicken world. I am currently a vet nurse, but keen to learn everything I can about chickens from real life people and their experiences rather than just text books. Oh and I am from New Zealand, so keen to see how things are done all over the world :).
    I have recently rescued a few chickens myself and want to do the best I can for them.
    I have a retired layer red shaver hen, 2 younger laying red shavers and a barred rock cross hen with 2 chicks.
    I did try and post a thread earlier but not sure if I did it properly or not, so hopefully this isn't a double up!
    Thanks in advance for all your help.
