Hi there, my name is Kylie and we are situated in CHCH. Altho we dont have any 'land' as such I am certainly hoping we will one day and at the moment we do have a large section and have recently just added Aruacana x hen with 3 x 16day old chicks! We also have a cat,kitten,dog and 2 budgies. My two kids aged 2 and 3 are animal mad like me. I look forward to reading much more on this forum :) :)

Welcome Kylie! There is much you can do with a section - have a search through the archives (I know there was a recent thread about what can be done in small spaces, and a lot of us have been there, making the most of what space we had, growing lots and even a few animals!).

Welcome from me too, Kylie. Andrea's right - there is a heap you can do on a smaller amount of land, and you're off to a great start with the chooks. They're such useful little critters - eggs, fertiliser, land breakers-in, waste disposal units and food if you're inclined to eat them. Excellent way to teach kiddies animals responsibility and the life cycle, as well.

I love hearing how people make use of their spot, and we all enjoy pictures, so please keep posting :D
Cheers, Mich.

Hi. Welcome to the forum. Good luck with all your animals.
Andrea is right about the archives. I have found threads about most questions I have had over the last year, and saved wasting the vets time for trivial problems and got them in quickly when needed. Cheers

Hi Kylie :)

As everyone has beaten me to saying, "Welcome"!

Like yourself, I'm new to the LSB forums and currently live on a 1/4 (rural) town section - I don't even have any chickens :( so your place sounds more like a farm than mine.

As for doing a lot with little space, I'm reading a library book by Nicki Trench titled "Creating Your Garden Farm" and am finding it a very good read so if you haven't read it, you may enjoy doing so.

What a great start to life your children are receiving; teaching them to love nature and value their animals is a great gift, keep it up!
