    I just want to thank this forum and it's members for being here. I have been a(n overly) proud chook parent for nearly two weeks now, and I'm irretrievably lost to them. And fine with it. I'm already plotting how to acquire a couple of Brahmas and maybe another Cochin. Anyway, my dear partner of 13 years, Dave, really likes them too. But even he has gone from the 'glazed' look when I start banging on about chooks, to starting to appear... cornered? I dont know. All I really wanted to say here was THANKYOU for being a bunch if lovely birdbrained peeps. It helps to have somewhere to go.

    Wow, what's it like living in Tasmania?---so exotic [​IMG]

    Anyway, I definitely hold the title of crazy chicken lady and I'm not afraid to show it. They do the slightest thing and I think it's hilarious! I think my flock number is 50+ considering I had two hens go broody this year. It's hard to cut down on your numbers LOL!

    Haha! Exotic isn't a word I've heard used to describe Tassie, but it is definitely beautiful. Beautiful mountains, untouched bushland, marsupials all over the place. It's basically a giant postcard. We moved here a year ago from very suburban North Melbourne in Victoria. Now we live in the bush by the Huon River near a tiny country town.

    I really couldn't be happier!

    Here's a wallaby in my yard, and if you look closely, there's a little joey peeping out of her pouch :) [​IMG]

    And here's the view from the top of Mount Wellington. You can see a bushfire that was active at the time: [​IMG]

    I'll stop now! Once I get started, i'll spend the next hour telling everyone why they should move here :D

    Oh my goodness, but chicken talk is such a pleasure! I know that glazed and cornered look all too well. :lol:

    I happen to be sitting in a pub right now and just overheard a gal mention chickens.... I was at their table in a flash. She was so thrilled to find another person willing to talk about chickens and their personalities - ptoabably just as thrilled as was I!
    ;)

    Ohhh real life chicken people! I would love to meet one of those. Lots of people around here have chickens, but they're strictly 'working' chooks. They're certainly not interested in talking about their personalities ;)

    That said, I don't mind if the townsfolk think I'm weird. Keeps em on their toes!

    Well, living in Pennsylvania, I guess I consider just about anything exotic LOL! But I do think Tasmania fits it pretty good. [​IMG] Love the pictures!
