    I love my australorps. They are so beautiful with the black/green/purple sheen to their feathers.

    I love my Giants, and they are only babies! At 8 months old, they still have ALOT of growing yet to do!

    Jersey Giants...all the way!!! [​IMG]

    Australorps are pretty, and the one hen I have is a sweetie who has a kind, gentle voice, but I gotta say I like the Jerseys better. As previously stated, they already come in more than one color, and they are majestic to look at (in my opinion)
