So...I spent three years trying to convince DH we needed chickens. He finally kinda agreed to it, so I didn't waste any time and, before he changed his mind, I got 6 chicks! This is what I got: Born on Aug 18 - 1 Barred Plymouth Rock - 2 SLW Born on Aug 25 - 1 EE - 2 Black Australorp (not bantams) The EE is now almost the same size as the ones born on Aug 18, but the two Australorps are much smaller!! They are all very active, seem to be very healthy, so I guess I shouldn't worry, but you know how first time moms are... Has anybody experienced the same with Australorps? Thanks!!!
