Some suggestions for spelling / grammar:

On the Simple as A B C page...

1. This is a FREE SERVICE to you and is a one man operation so be patient, it can take up to twenty four hours for your page to go live after i recieve your application folder with its contents.

receive.... "i before e, except after c".


2. My Poultry is a free service to help connect the poultry community through out Australia and to help showcase your own poultry. The sites main aim is to act as an owner breeder directory to show case your own birds Australia wide.

showcase... one word, as done correctly in the first sentence.


On the About This Site page...

3. INTERESTED then go to the SIMPLE AS A.B.C. page.

I would suggest: INTERESTED ? Then go to the SIMPLE AS A.B.C. page.


4. The main object of this site is for you to showcase your own poultry and for people to contact you if they are interested in the breeds that you keep.If your new to poultry this site will act as a breeders directory to find the breed that you are interested in and the breeders location and contact details.

you're..... as in "you are"

I'm sure there should be an apostrophe in "breeders" but my mind has failed me about that.

5. This is a FREE service and is avaliable to all poultry breeders that are breeding birds as close as possible to the Australian Poultry Standard.

available... typo I'd imagine


On the Bird Transport page:

6. Even if your driving interstate to visit friends and you have room in your car for birds post it here, it may pay some of your fuel costs.

you're... as in "you are"

... post it here. It may pay... Two sentences here rather than one with a comma.

7. Shareing a crate with others cuts costs.

Sharing.... no "e"

8. For all your transport inquirys E-mail me krum2@bigpond.com and i will post them here.

enquiries.... an inquiry is a formal investigation & an enquiry is a question, and the plural of words ending in "y" rarely ends in "ys"

I... this should always be a capital letter when used to indicate self


On most of the pages..

9. Is it supposed to say "THE INDIAN RUNNER DUCK" at the top of each page? Or is it supposed to say "MY POULTRY"?

I think this one might be right as it stands. It's a directory full of breeders , not a directory that belongs to the breeders.
