    Good Morning BYCers!

    I am looking forward to picking your brain so I can take the best care of my future flock! I am planning to raise Australorps. I chose them because they are docile good egg layers and are a great dual purpose chicken. They are almost too beautiful to eat.

    Thank you!

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] You are welcome to pick our brains LOL You've picked a good breed. I had an Australorp X hen who still laid like mad aged 5 years. I had to rehome her when we moved, so I don't know if she's still at it, probably!

    I think you will find our Learning Center very informative and helpful and if you have questions or don't understand anything, go to the relevant section and ask. We're here to help. What you can also do is type the keywords relating to your query into the advanced search bar on top and read through the results threads. I've found some great answers to my questions in the old threads! Enjoy the site!

    Good luck with your future Australorps! I hear they're good layers.
