We bought a Black Australorp from a local breeder last week. S/he, Olive, adores my son and happily perches on his lap. Olive is a LOT bigger than our other chicks (Wellies, BR) and a titch bigger than our BO. It may be that she is older? I do know they were "started" chicks. She doesn't have much of a comb so hopefully she can stay.... I am attempting to raise larger bodied pullets for our giant EE rooster in hopes of giving our other hens a break! Thanks for looking!!
