    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! It's great to hear you are enjoying your chicken adventures :D
    They sure are great time wasters! I can spend ages out just watching them go about their chicken business. Have you checked out the learning centre? Lots of great articles to have a read through there. Here is the link ~https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Be sure to ask any questions that you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Australorps are a wonderful breed; extremely hardy, calm and gentle (great lap pets), and excellent layers of brown eggs. X2 on Yorkshire coop; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
