    Hi Okies!

    I'm still planning and getting set up and don't have any chicks yet. There are so many breeds to choose from, and several sound wonderful; a good friend who used to have chickens strongly recommended Black Australorps. So I immediately did some reading on that breed and they sound great, and look beautiful. What I want are great layers of brown eggs, good-sized eggs, good temperament in the birds--not shy and not aggressive to people--and able to tolerate our heat. Same thing most everybody wants, I imagine.

    Was wondering if any others keep these chickens, and how pleased are you with them? Would you recommend another breed, or wish you had a different breed? I see that the hatchery in Wewoka has them, and it would make a nice afternoon trip over to get some one of these days.

    As always, any advice, suggestions, and recommendations appreciated. Thanks!
