Long time lurker, first time poster.
Living in Ellenbrook, WA and farming out my backyard. I have a bunch of fruit tree saplings and a small flock of chooks.
Oh – am also a reasonable blacksmith! 🙂
Look forward to hearing from you!
Hey there Michael, :wave:
Congratulations on coming out of the closet! :rol:
Hope to see you joining in with the forum chatter more often now you have actually stuck your big toe in the water.
Hiya Mike :wave:
Yay… some more West Ozmonaughts :tup:
See you around the site.
Cheers – Erthgirl x
Hi Michael :wave: I remember watching our local blacksmith when I was small. He would make horseshoes from lenghts of straight iron. I remember being awed by all the fire and noise and smells.
G’day Michael and welcome to ALS.
A smithy, well you’ll be able to cast your eye over things here and iron a few things out eh! 😉
Enjoy the journey to simple living:tup:
Gday from another Sandgroper 🙂
Im in Ellenbrook too!! 😆
Hi Michael -there are a few of us Perthites here!
welcome to ALS, we are getting a biger representation here in the west. how did you manage to get chooks in your back yard in Ellenbrook, Joondulup shire is a **** (not sure if we are alowed to swear on the forum):D
the regulations of keeping chooks where we are are so ristrictive that most ordinary size blocks are too small to comply with regulations.

We’re actually in City of Swan, so when I moved in, the first thing I did was ask the council what the deal was with chickens.
At the time, there wasn’t any hard and fast rules, other than “do what you like as long as your neighbours don’t complain”.
But yeah, so far so good 🙂
Hi Michael, nice to see someone else from the West.
In regards to chickens I think people from the older shires like Swan and Stirling have an advantage as there are so many older Europeans, especially in my area – Italians, Yugoslavs etc who have always had chickens so they are kind of accepted as part of the fabric of the community (with some new rules to limit impacts on neighbours). Newer cities like Joondalup dont have that history.
