    Hello everyone, I just picked up 6 Black Australorp pullets this weekend at TSC and they are the sweetest (albeit I've got a couple of screamers...lol) little things. Look forward to learning a lot about being a chicken owner and info about my little chicks.

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Good luck with your new flock! Australorps are a nice breed, they should lay lots of eggs for you. They do have a breed thread if you want to check that out. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/316084/australorps-breed-thread/0_20 A great place to start reading in general is the BYC Learning Center, lots of nice articles on all aspects of poultry keeping you'll find helpful https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and it is always fun to check out your state thread for chicken keeping neighbors https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread
