My Australorp chickens

Posted Aug 15, 2015

My Australorp chickens were very obedient chickens. They were very easy to take care of excluding their pooing situation which came to be a very messy condition in taking care of them. They were not very good at foraging for their own food so there was a high cost on food and nutrients for the chickens. They tended to try and fly out of their pen but this was quickly resolved with an enclosed little space which I found isvery necessary in the safe raising of these chickens.
