Just moved to Blackfoot, Idaho from South Carolina. Experimented there for a couple of years with lots of different chicken breeds from hatcheries. Loved it. However, I am really wanting to focus on just Australorps and getting them as near the SOP with good utility as I can. Sold all my chickens when I left SC and don't have any at the moment. Just about got my new house set up to properly house them. Hoping to get some new chicks from a breeder and not a hatchery to get started this time. Still haven't decided between blue or black Australorps. That probably depends on what I can find from a breeder though.
