Sounds like a great set up you will have David. Pics would be nice too :)

I am breeding Golden Legbars and Anconas as most back yard chooks last for 2 seasons and then egg production is down I want to have Good but not stupendous producers that will last 4 years plus for families so kids can have productive pets for longer.  I used to have Dorkings but as the tend to go broody they don't fit the bill for a average backyard chook.

I try and have my breeders close to the house and the others up near the neighbours' fences so they don't have the rooster noise so bad.

I am working to have 8 pens for the worker hens so I can rotate them through and grow vegies in the other 7 pens.  I just need time so I can get them done.

My neighbour is selling her chook run. See HERE for details.

Methinks we need to move this conversation to the futures group (or just start a new thread).  I'd like a monthly e-get together.

Live chat could be good, especially for those who can't make it to a get together.

Ah its time like these - both on here at the same time - when we need "chat" (which btw we could have!)

It worked just then, the previous ones I got a message saying "Your post has been marked as spam and will be checked/approved by a moderator".

Are you able to remove one discussion as I've added a new one since and doubled up? Can you delete "Where to buy - Info"

Great group Stevo! What does the message say when you try to post a discussion? I'm not sure what's going on, but I marked your posts as 'not spam' from the spam folder - let's see what happens in future posts!

I've kept Australorp, Araucana, Leghorns, and Lohmann Brown before, would like to try Peckin ducks, or white wyandott bantam when I have a backyard again :-)
