    Hi my name is Mark I recently purchased two Austrolops from a gentleman at the flea market. We honestly chose them for there coloration more than anything, but since getting home have researched them and think we made a really good choice. We have them in a 20x40 fenced run with attached roosting area coop.

    Thanks for all the welcomes, we were lucky that there was a run already here when we moved in, just need to do a few repairs. the coop area is enclosed but has no door to it, the laying boxes are in an area that is covered and the fencing is about 8 ft high. I have a few friends with 4 times as many as I do in a smaller area, so am hoping they will do well.
