    Hen Laid Soft Shell Egg, Yolk Outside

    Hi. I had a 5 1/2 month old Australorp hen today that was acting lethargic, sitting in the run while others were out free ranging, not eating melon (she LOVES melons), etc. Her crop was very squishy, so I assumed she had a sour crop and proceeded to very, very gently induce vomiting, gently...

    Are they hens?

    I bought what I was told were 1 day old female black australorps from a local feed store.... they appear to be barred rock. These are my first chickens I’ve owned and I’d really love some options on if they are in fact girls. This is the 4 of them below today at 5 weeks 1 day old.

    I picked up this 1-2week old Australorp. I am unsure they gave me the right breed as all the pictures I see online of australorp chicks have yellow stomach, and mine doesn’t. Could this be a different breed? Has anyone had a all black australorp chick?

    When do Australorps start laying?

    Hi guys. I’ve got one australorp hatched on August 8 last year, she’s been laying since late or early January. She’s doing really well and laying everyday. I’ve got another one that hatched on 18 September and still didn’t lay an egg... is she too young or am I just unlucky? She’s much bigger...

    This is my youngest roo Johnny.. does he look like a mix of sorts, Australorp? Jersey Giant? We picked him from a bunch of mixed chicks. He is the same size as my 5 month hens, he’s around 16-17 weeks. Big boy!

    Hen or Roo? I think Over Easy got revenge

    Thinking our rescue Australop pullet Pidgy McNugget is a cockeral. The face is a little redder. Born around May 15th and is a bantam size chicken. So about 3 months old. Hasn't crowed yet.
