    Hello from Cali

    Welcome, Australorps are great birds. Have some myself and found them to be easy going, not overly aggressive and easy to handle /get used to owners. Have fun!

    Barred rock egg irregularities

    Wash and put in the fridge, should be fine. Over time your pulleys/hens will improve. Every now and then I still get an egg that I shake my head at.... covered in poop and somehow not even close to the nesting box.

    How this happened...

    Welcome, hope you find some great friendly advice here. I see your family has the chicken math bug! I have to restrain myself, there are too many lovely breeds but really such a limited ability for me to keep more than about 14:( I think I need a farm haha

    What bantam breed next?

    I have thought about the d’uccle.... are they much smaller than Other bantams? I can always house them separately, I have a second unused coop at the moment. Not really a fan of silkies, but may be open to giving them a go. I guess it may end up being what we can source.

Bless her, she was one of our original Pekin (Cochin) bantams and would have been 7 this March. This also...

    How Old is Your Oldest Chicken?

    I have two Cochin bantams that are 7 years old... everyone seems quite surprised as many people tell me they live on average for 4-5 years. Your hen must know she is onto a good thing with you as her keeper
