    Researching different breeds of birds and ran across yall's site. Always excited to see different breeds of birds. I currently have a few Australops and a Rhode Island red or two. :)

    Looking forward to learning more about other birds here.

    Welcome!

    I love the RIR's! Hey, you may want to check out the Bielefelders! Great all around chicken. Very very friendly. And they lay a good amount of eggs, and, they lay large. So I've read..lol..waiting on this pullet. I've already noticed the friendly! She follows me around and talks to me the whole time. :)

    Current birds are 6-7 months old. They were kinda rescue birds. Feller a county over was covered up with young birds, to the tune of 300+. He made my brother and me a deal that we couldn't refuse. For every rooster we caught we could have a hen. We caught 50 birds all together, 25 hens and 25 roosters. I grew up with Reds, so I wanted to try something differnet so I keep 11 hens and 1 rooster of the Australops. He keep the other hens and we found homes for the other roosters. So it was a good deal for all parties involved.
