I have been a member for some time but have now decided to introduce myself. My name is Jeff and I have a mixture of Light Sussex and Australorp Blacks. They blend well together with the occasional cross emerging from fertile eggs. I have one girl who is grey and is a monster, which forces me to get her down from her roost each morning to prevent her hurting herself. I have a propensity to breed males on our property, eg, 26 day old chicks bought, 17 roosters, 23 keets, 15 males, 3 breeding Alpacas, 3 male progeny and I have 4 Sons. My wife and I can't work it out but we are happy.
