    I'm excited to join this group and share as well as learn s'more stuff about our feathered friends. I had an Australorp rooster and still have his hens; Rhode Island Reds and Buff Orpingtons. My rooster's offspring includes this rooster - Mommy, I think, was my Rhode Island. Just a guess. Here's a shot of him - what do you think?

    In addition since he was hatched this past Spring I acquired a couple of Plymouth Rock hens, a Silver laced Wyandotte, a Red Laced Wyandotte/Australorp hen cross and another Buff Orpington.
    The Wyandotte/Australorp cross is this little lady:

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I agree; your rooster in the top pic looks like a BA X RIR cross. He's a beautiful rooster. Your Wyandotte X Australorp crossed hen is very beautiful as well. :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.

    Thank you! I'm considering allowing her to breed with my rooster (not related so won;t get any funky mutant babies!) Curious what will turn out.
