    First of all I want to say HELLO!
    I'm 36 yo from Austria (no Kangaroos) and as it seems on the way to get addicted to chicken.

    Actually I've 4 'classic brown' hybrids. But I really get bored off the F1 laying machines. Sometimes I like to eat chicken, but I can't buy any meat in the supermarket anymore.
    So it's my turn:

    I like the description of Australorps and the gold laced Orpingtons. I know that they are relatives. I'm not sure about which of those I should take or even a mix would be possible?

    What do the chicken-pro's say?

    What would the breed look like, eg. a BO roo and a australorp hen?

    Thanks a lot for any help, and excuse my english - school is over for a couple of years ;-)
    And I have not found a german forum as big as this one!

    Best Regards
    Mathias

    Hello and welcome to BYC Mathis.

    You should go with what you feel you should go with. I've no experience with Gold Laced Orpington's, they are still a project here in the US.

    Anyway welcome
