I am new to the forum as well, from Australia (where Australorpes come from!) I just wanted to say that it is true, as was asked in an earlier post that roosters cannot crow if they can''t stand up. An old trick is to put a rooster in a cupboard or box at night and let them out again in the morning when you (and the neighbours) are better prepared for the crowing.
Aslo, someone mentioned that fertile eggs have more lecithin than unfertile eggs - I would love a reference for that, as I had always understood that there was no difference. I am tossing up whether to keep a rooster again myself (we live in the suburbs and technically we are not supposed to) and that could certainly tip the decision in the roosters favour!

I think the lecitin is true. I remember that the fertilized eggs fight cholesterol.

Does anyone keep Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, or Black Australorps? I would like to know a bit more about the breeds and their temperament from those who have kept them....in reading about the breeds, etc...these seem to fit best with what I'm looking for (the Rhodies are more because my dad loves 'em, lol). I want a good all-purpose bird with a gentle temperament that won't terrify my youngest *smiles*. He's autistic and has been raised in a city environment. If there are other breeds I should consider just point me in the right direction......

Be well......
