Hello all!  So glad to have found this site.  So much information!  My husband and I recently bought our first chickens - 12 Australorp chicks.  Then, just to complicate matters, my (adult) daughter decided that she wanted a duck.  No problem, but then she came home with SIX!  She takes great care of them.  They are so fun to watch! 

 

I am surprised at how attached I have become to the chickens.  I wasn't raised on a farm, and always thought chickens were skittish and unfriendly.  My chickens, however, are very sweet.  I just love spending time with them!  They should be old enough to start laying eggs sometime in August, I hope. 

 

I'm sure I'll have some questions for you as time goes on, so in the meantime, thanks for creating such a wonderful resource for us newbies!

Black Australorps are a very popular breed and  good layers of brown eggs. They also seem to do well in hot or cold climates, and are considered a docile, sociable breed. Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock.
