Just joined this forum. I have 4 chickens (Bantam Wyandottes) and want to get some more. Have 2 dogs and 2 kids as well. I "googled" chicken forum and this was the first one on the list that seemed to be what I was looking for..... Southern Hemisphere or Northern Hemisphere, I'm sure we encounter similar chicken problems and joys..... I love being a poultry owner, don't know how I did without them before.
