If you are looking for a prolific egg laying breed, then the Australorp is the answer! This chicken breed is considered the national breed of Australia. Formerly known as the Australian Laying Orpington or the Austral, this bird was a modification of the Orpington Chicken breed. While the Orpington chicken went on to becoming one of a show breed, the Australorp rose to popularity as a great utility bird. Available in colors like blue, black and white, this bird is one of the easiest ones to rear. This chicken is extremely hard which makes it suitable for cold weather conditions as well. If you are looking for free range chicken, this medium sized bird is perfect for you. On the other hand, if you are just looking for a friend, this beautiful, docile creature will fit the bill perfectly! If you are a first time chicken owner, this book is your comprehensive guide to chicken care. Everything that you need to know about the health and proper development of your birds is in this book. This book takes you step by step through various chicken care practises that can be slightly intimidating for first time pet owners. You can read about common issues like feeding, housing and healthcare for backyard chickens. I do hope that this book is as informative as I intended it to be. It is simple and fun to read, I assure you. So, here is wishing you pleasant times with your beloved Australorp chickens.Covered in this book:- History- Behavior- Best chickens to bring home- Preparing your home- Housing- Daily care- Interacting- Transporting- Managing the eggs- Health and well being- Costs.... and a lot more
