Thought I heard it all. The thing is my Mom has just been down under,nice 4 month vacation eh! Now she talks like an Aussie. She tells me that the Chooks are bigger down there than they are home. Heck, whats a Chook she won't tell me. The daughter tells me it's some kind of nuted sheep dog. Danged if I know?

Thanks, I learned something

G'day. I've just found your friendly site, and thought I might visit sometimes when I've got the time. The chook thread has caught my eye so I thought I'd say hello. Now that you know what a chook is I thought I'd mention that its pronunciation rhymes with "book"...a friend in Michigan thought it rhymed with "spook". We also call them chickens and hens down here but I prefer "chooks". (I spent a year in NW Arkansas when I was younger and loved the place...lived on a chook farm.)

Sorry about the double-up on the post...hopefully I'll learn how to use this forum...think I'll go and talk to the chooks. ;-)

Hello claire! Don't worry about the stuttering, we all do it at times. Glad ta meet you. Down under is where I always wanted to visit. Whereabouts do you live , central, coast? I hail from south central Missouri, up above Arkansas. Welcome and happy to see a new face (type?). Grin. Rachel

Hi Rachel and Craig, Thanks for the welcome. Rachel, I live in Victoria...in the south, about twenty minutes drive inland from the coast. Craig, it is good to see another Aussie here...I'm willing to take up your challenge to be an ambassador for down here...will be a lot of fun.
Nice to meet you both. Talk to you two later.

PS: Still trying to figure out how this message board works...there isn't anything wrong with it...it's just me and computers...will be going out to talk to the chooks again I think. :-)

G'Day,
Like Claire, I too am a loyal subject of this great wide land we call Australia. Also like Claire I like your site and to Rachel, I would have no doubt that you would love Australia particularly South Australia my home state. I surfed here by mistake, but I'm glad I did. I got excited when I saw the word Chook. I breed Chooks in Adelaide (a city with just over 1 million people), hence my email address www.feedthechooks@yahoo.com.au. Now my challenge to Claire is for her and I to become Aussie ambassadors to yall. By the way, don't be fooled about the shrimp bit, down here we "throw another snag on the barbie". Didjaallavagoodweekend.
Best wishes
Craig "The Dag" from Down Under. ps.
"CHOOKS ROCK".
