Australorps weren't on my wish list but they are great looking birds. Let me see what dh says. So far I collected 3 silkie eggs for the bator. Hopefully they will lay again before I set them. It's been 2 weeks since our roo went MIA. I'm afraid the eggs won't be fertile for much longer. No problem about the eggs/chicks in Feb. just remind me when the time comes!
The chicken hoarder in me is having a hard time passing these up, it's 5 minutes from my house but I must remain strong! Lol http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/grd/3948679409.html
Free chicks are always tempting. I don't have the space for them right now either so no chicks for me either. Just let me know if you want the Australorp eggs, no big deal. I would love to give some to someone just to check the fertilization. Like I said, I would hatch some for myself but I just don't want any chicks right now. I really hope to put together a bigger, better coop this fall but money is so tight right now that I can't do it. I would try to use recycled materials, but the skill level is a little beyond what I am armed with. I will probably have to wait until spring.
2 RIR, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 5 leghorns, 7 BLack Copper Marans, 3 Olive Eggers, 8 Black Australorps, 2 Easter Eggers...how is that too many???
