I prefer the forum too but not much choice these days.

Thanks. I'll think about whether to join the group. I can't imagine realistically that I'll have anything to contribute, but reading what's there might be interesting. Facebook is so invasive. It wants you to wear your life on your sleeve so that a billionaire you're never going to meet can make himself even richer.

I'm no chook egg expert, but 62 gm seems pretty respectable to me. It sounds like the utility aspects of your Australorp line might be a little stronger than in the case of Rach's. You can expect me to be bothering you for advice about where to obtain some birds, when I finally manage to get myself bask to Australia.
