Thanks Squeak.

I think we have such an enthusiastic bunch of people involved that we should be able to help the region get to love poultry in the backyard. It was great to see such a large turnout.

Also great to see all the examples of the different breeds people brought along.

Cheers
Raf

Yes, great success. I couldn't get too involved with a sick baby, however it was great to match names to faces. I really like the practical side of the group.

Very keen to get a lesson in genetics, maybe one meeting we could have a short dummies guide to genetics?

If we get enough interested in going to the Camden poultry show we could look at hiring a van or something. I'll check out costs.

Looking forward to the next one.

If we are going to the Camden show, then we should try and show a few birds. Crazy I know.

Raf,

My best bird is a wyandotte with a straight comb... So probably not ready to take any birds. But I'm sure someone else should have birds to impress.
