    I'm not from QLD but Newcastle in NSW ! Good to see another Aussie posting. Just got my four lovely ladies destined for Steggles battery chicken farm. Soooooo happy that I can give them a better (just a bit !) life than what they were going to. Hope they appreciate it and lay lots of eggs for me ! I'm pretty sure they will. They follow us everywhere and are such personalities, love em. They are only at point of lay now and two have already started laying. Dogs aren't real sure whats going on (both Jack Russell X's). Have seen them crouched on the ground couple of times when they get too close with four chooks all over them. They have been so good and now they know what the consequences are they stay away ! How about you random what's your story.[​IMG]

    Hey. Fully understand about the waiting game. My daughter was two full weeks overdue when she was born. I left work four weeks before my due date then had to sit at home waiting for SIX weeks. Reckon I put on about ten kilos then !!
    Our chooks were 16 weeks when we got them and they're pretty big so haven't had any trouble with dogs and cats and stuff. Magpies swoop them when they're out in the backyard that's all. It is a sharp learning curve hey. Yeah we have had some bad weather here. Real hot for more than a week, like over 40. Then it rained pretty hard for another week or more. Seems to have evened out now. Much better !!
