    Hi All!!
    I recently bought a 10-12 week old Australorp. I had a nice plump pullet chosen out, but was then told to choose another, who was almost as plump, but developing slower.
    I was told that her ear lobes were less developed and this ment she would end up a bigger, nicer bird...
    How true is this?...
    If this is true does this mean a slower developing bird will result in a bigger bird..?.
    Any other tips on our new investments of Australorps please fill me in
    THANK GUYS!!...
