I'm considering ordering some black australorp pullets from Ideal. Has anyone ordered these from Ideal before? And how is the quality of their Australorps? I'm not wanting to show, I just want some big black beauties!

I had purchased Australorps from Ideal 2 years ago. They were good layers. Their eggs were medium to large and the hens really were not as big as I expected. But, they wre pretty and black.

Good luck finding BAs. The 3 I originally got from the feed store were supposed to be BAs but were actually BRs. And I know they came from Ideal. I heard from another feed store that they ordered BAs and were sent BRs. If you find any, let me know:D. I'd still like some big black babies..sigh. Maybe in the spring. Send pics when you do get them!
