I have seen many threads about many types of chickens. There are so many beautiful ones, but my heart is really soft for my black australorps. We have tried many other varieties and I do love the pretty colors of other birds and feathered feet on the cochins. I have just found my black australorps to be sooo beautiful and their personality is just great. Does anyone else feel this way? I noticed some of my ladies have dark eyes, almost black and some have light brown eyes. Are there differant varieties of australorps? Would love to learn more about them.
