Couple of weeks ago put in a thread re a couple we know travelling with a chook - well we have heard from in the last week or so - they have got rid of their "carryvan" and bought a caravan - have spent most of the time since Christmas in SA - been up to Birdsville, etc etc, in the heat - reckon they were the only dills out there at that time - anyway they are heading up towards Darwin - probably meandering a bit knowing them.
Anyway good to know all is well with them.
Say g'day if you see Kev and Rob around the traps.

They may have problems crossing state borders with a chook.

Border Patrol must make life a misery for you LOL

Hope the other half never calls you a "silly old chook", or tell you not to "get too clukky". If he did I rekkon his life wouldn't be worth living.
As for travelling with a real chook...well it takes all sorts I guess.

Just a question that arises from reading about someone travelling with pets, as I'm aware of the issues about travelling with pets into designated national parks (being a no no), can forumites give me their opinions of travelling with pets such as long billed correllas. I'm thinking that with proper planning on accomodation, food, safety, it would be manageable to take our pet with us on a trip around. We plan on having an appropriate caravan to live in whilst we are away. Anyway, tell us your thoughts.

This is what all these laws are about - take away the common sense and replace it with some police to merely enforce the letter of the law. It is sometimes much easier to bend the rules a little rather than ask if it is OK.

Kind regards

Hi Julie

That's a lovely tale..... I love chooks-wish to goodness our neighbourhood would get rid of some of the dogs and get chooks!
Do you know if they have to tether the bird during the day or night or does it come home by itself? How about it's food etc-I suppose they just a supply of pellets with them.

Wonmder if it lays whilst travelling.ha ha

Happy days

George
