Well, I'm getting a new pullet this weekend as I previously asked questions about how to integrate them. But now I'm wondering what I should get? My options thus far are: Black Cornish, Gold Sexlink, and Australorp....I could get a RIR pullet but I'd have to drive a half hour further.... plus I thought it would be fun to mix it up. I'm not really interested in getting a gold sexlink, i'm thinking of the australorp are they good egg layers? Does anyone have experience with them? How about black cornish? I read somewhere that they are primarily meat birds and don't lay that well... I'm mostly interested in friendly birds who are good egg layers... Any suggestions?
