    Hi all,

    Rescue Mama from a quite residential town in Croydon, VIC in Australia. 22, and living the animal rescue dream.

    New to having backyard chooks, so far we have 6 hens:

    THE ORIGINAL THREE
    - Paisley, our moulting lead hen, a leghorn x Australorp
    - Audrey, named after Little Shop of Horrors, a nice ISA Brown
    - Ethel, a white and brown flecked something. She has a squashed, wide comb.

    THE NEXT GENERATION
    - Bear, a brown something something with a fluffy floof on it's head. Gender confused. Bear is named after Bear GRYLLS after surviving a week in the wilds of the horrid world - "The Other Side of the Fence-land"
    - Big Mama, a HUGE (for age) Australorpe girl.

    THE SPARE
    - Imelda, a white-ish Wyandotte, who came to the flock to fill Bear's space in it's disappearence - Bear came home after a week, Imelda stayed on.

    Besides Bear's adventures, it's all laid back. A slight case of BUGS in the coop (gross!) was fixed swiftly. We get on average 2 eggs a day from 3 layers.

    Also the rescue mama of two dogs, Pew (a princess chinese crested hairless) and Digit (a dense pug x griffon)
    We have rescued 3 cats. Two boys - Loki and Simba (Simba being my childhood cat - still kicking!) and then the tiny Minchin, our only female kit.
    I did rescue a 28 year year old man - but that he's hardly a pet, right?

    I am hoping to rescue a snake at the end of the year!

    So, that's me and my brood! Look forward to the assistance that being a member of BYC provides!

    Cheers,
    Rescue Mama

    Quote:Ha! I think that is one I will not try to introduce.
    Our cats, dogs and chooks all get on and let each other be
    (except for Mama, our black hen who will tear the dogs a new one if they get too close!)
