    I would like to start breeding with my Austrolopes. Do I keep them in the run without letting them out:.

    It all depends. Do you have just aussies or mix? I have a mix so I would separate them and put Aussie rooster with Aussie hens so you get pure Australorps. One of my roosters is a welsummer. Do you have a separate breeding coop? Or a small place where they can be just the aussies for a few weeks? Separate if you want them pure. Hope this helps.
