Hello there and welcome to BYC!

So glad you could join our community!
Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You have a very good and thorough introduction, and some very good, dual purpose breeds. Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed; extremely hardy, calm and gentle, and excellent layers of large, brown eggs. I also have some Buff Orpingtons in my flock and they are a great breed as well; very friendly and gentle. My granddaughter has made lap pets out of them. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
