Australorp (sorry, pic is large)


I'm suppose to get the ones I ordered tomorrow but when I saw the australorps I couldn't resist. They were my favorites of the ones I got last year.

Mahonri, the SLW is a cute little fuzzy thing. There was another one there that I wanted to bring home but when the guy did the upside-down leg test (of which I really have no faith in) he pronouced the other one a rooster. I REALLY want this one to be a pullet.

Quote:If you hold them by their legs and they fall straight down they are pullets, if they try to keeping coming back up, then roos. I think that is when they are tiny. Looks mean to me...

I'm amazed at how fast these babies grow!! I got new ones today...the ones I actually ordered...and they are so much tinier but only a few days younger.
