I have a question for you experts on Black Aussies. Does this breed have more feathers than the average large breed chicken? I spoke with someone here many months ago about how Aussies DO have more feathers and require more protein than other large breed birds. I am considering using a 26% feed on them to help support the feathers and protein needs of these birds. Is this a good idea for my Black Aussies? Will this cause any adverse effects on them? They seem to be more feathers than meat!! LOL Edit to add: I just realized the subject I used is Black Orpingtons...I am talking about Black Australorps. I tried to go back and edit the subject, but it is not letting me do it.
