Re: Can anyone tell me if australaup and black Orpington are the same breed. Or what are the differences

They are different breeds, both are large and black obviously.

If you look up and read their origins though you may find they are related in some way, a common ancestor.

Re: To hatch or not to hatch...

Rearing chicks and watching them grow is an absolute joy. Not only do you get sweet friendly super tame chickens from them who love you for their lifetime, but the watching them grow into beautiful birds is a great reward. I only ever hatch my own flock, and the rewards are great. My first were rais...

Re: Utility white Leghorns - 19 weeks old

Flighty could be an other word for their attitude to life. I've never had a pullet lay at 19 weeks, they are a joy to behold, I would call them cheerful girls. Alongside the Croads, 3 times their size and bulk they look so slender and elegant. Black and white always look good together I think. The C...

Utility white Leghorns - 19 weeks old

My two lovely girls have each presented me with an egg!

One is long and thin and the other is round and fat, the eggs, not the pullets. It was a lovely surprise. Love those girls to bits, they are so lively and noisy, but very pettable.

Re: Organic Pellets

My girls thrive on A&P layers pellets ordinary, I'm not too sure I always believe the organic bit, probably with A&P it is true, though.

I keep going with them as my girls are large and healthy, also my bantams, small and healthy.

Re: Weather

I've had frozen water for 3 days now! - poor me. This morning is a white out, everything covered in snow, and still currently snowing. Yesterday morning, squeezing between a tree trunk, the hut and the fence, I found a cache of large eggs, in a hollow in the ground behind the hut, and about Croad si...
