    G’Day from down under SomeHotChicks [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Those are all great choices! Our neighbors have Buff Orpingtons, they are sweet and friendly. I have three Ameraucanas, all are sweet and very pretty. I don't have Austrolorps, but i have read a lot about them. They are excellent layers, super friendly, the males are not known at all for fighting with each other, they do not turn broody (which can be a real pain), are hardy, and they make excellent pets. Leghorns are flightly and skittish and do not usually make good pets. If you handle them a lot they will be more friendly though. don't know much about Brahmas, but they are very pretty. Their pen also needs to be kept dry because they have feathered legs and they will get muddy and yucky, if their area is dry, however, they will be much cleaner, prettier, and happier. Enjoy your chicks!
