    What's everyone's opinion and experience on Australorps? I added 10 to my chick order that i just picked up because I've never had them and wanted some variety in my flock.

    I love my black Aussies. I find them to be very gentle birds and great layers. Even my roosters are really sweet. I think you will love them :)

    I have of them! They are awesome layers! Mine are my least friendly, but I only have them and 3 Sussex that are older. I still have to see what happens with my little ones. They aren't not friendly, just not as friendly as the others. :p they are beautiful though! I love the greens and blues and purples that show up when the sun hits them!

    I love my BA hens( 2 yo) but the roo is a monster. he started appx. 1 yo to act aggressive and NOTHING works for long to discourage him but...... the hens lay beautiful big eggs and they would probably go broody if I let them. They don't like to give their eggs up but are very gentle when you are collectng.
