    I bought several Black Australorp crossed chicks this spring, this is the only one that survived my dog attacking them. The mom is a Buff Orpington.
    As a youngster she wasn't that impressive.

    But as a point of lay pullet she is gorgeous!

    So I have a Buff Orpington Roo and used my niece's Black Australorp hen and hatched out several more Australorpington chicks. They are all going to look just like Blondie.

    I hope they are as good a layer as their mom.

    They have gold fronts and are brownish greyish in back. I think they are very pretty.
