    My Australorp was the first to start laying again after winter and she's 3 years old! She's also very calm and docile.

    I've got two Aquila chicks I hatched from Dunlap hatchery that are a cross between a Australorp and a Rhode Island Red. I got them because they bred them specifically to be the best docile egg layer. They are only 4.5 weeks old now (I think I've got one rooster and one hen) so I'll have to update you on my rating :) I will say they are my two friendliest, affectionate chicks out of 15 who love to be held and petted.
