    My kids and I are having a blast watching these chicks.

    Just thought I'd share a little happiness and excitement.

    Australorps are such sweet birds, very friendly and calm. Have fun with your babies!

    I made sure I was able to get one this year! Her name is Echo, she is a loud mouth but SO sweet!

    I loved my BA Matilda and was so heartbroken when she got sick and died. Luckily, I had a BA pullet chick growing up at the time, and now Molly is following me around, telling me chickeny stories, all the same adorable behavior demonstrated by Matilda.

    BAs are GREAT birds. So pretty in the sunlight, too, with that beetle-green sheen on their black feathers!
