If your not having fun......................its time to do something else!
Wecome! nice post! sorry you cant have more
That is one of the great traits in the Australorps, we grab them up, pet them, put them down and they come back for more!
I lost an one of my Cackle girls this weekend. She was 2.5 years old. I live in California and even though I was fairly sure the heat had killed her, I took her in for a free Necropsy.
She died of Fatty Liver disease. One of the other Cackle hens died of the same thing at 9 months old.
This is the Necropsy Report:

Ross and Chet, Welcome back.
Chet, say it ain't so.Trading your Harley for a JEEP????? Sacrilege!!!
This is the first day without rain so I am finishing up my 5th coop.
I will try to get pics of the Tigercreek 4 and the Hupp 5 in a couple of days.
The raccoon rampage is slowing down like the song " another one bites the dust " boom boom.
Way to go Kurt! Keep knockin'em down?
A question for those of you who feed the High Protein Game Bird Starter. How long do you feed it?
2.4 kg seems a reasonable weight. Was the other the same breed? What feed are they on? 9 months is scary young for fatty liver!
They are on Non Soy non corn feed. The report said it did not have to do with feed--Some breeds are prone to it.
After the first one died of Fatty Liver disease, I made sure that they do not get carbs. The worst they get is a small tea cup of BOSS(Black Oil Sunflower Seed) each day.
