    Hi I am a new chook keeper. Today I am adding a two day old austrolorp chick to a broody pekin bantam. I would love a good layer as my bantams go broody a lot. I hope this goes well as I have not done this before. The last chicks I got were eggs and hatched by my serrogate bantams naturally. :) I am very excited to have an austrolorp as they are so beautiful.

    Great luck with your idea It seems Bantams do seem to go broody a lot from what I have read here on the site I have never had Bantams but they are cute dont you think? Best of luck
