1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    This is for my Australian friends.

    You call chickens Chooks or chickens. We here in the US call them chicks or chickens.

    Is Chooks short for anything or just a common slang for chickens like chicks is for us?

    We use Chooks and chickens interchangeably with no real preference for either.

    Chooks is not short for anything, but for us a 'Chick' is a baby chicken.

    Yep - i agree with Tony.

    Chook is just a single-syllable replacement for Chicken.
    We Aussies love to shorten just about anything possible :D
