Black Australorp Chicks

Black Australorp Chickens are a popular producer of large brown eggs and are known for their heat and cold hardiness and persistence in laying- especially in hot weather. They can lay up to 250 eggs annually and will lay into winter. When this breed was being developed, the breeders focused on utility and today this is what they are known for. Australorps mature early and are docile, quiet birds, which makes them great for handling and children. When mature, Australorps have glossy, all-black feathers that show a gorgeous green sheen. From the time these chicks hatch until they are full grown, their feathers have white tips. 

Great dual purpose choice. Average mature weight: rooster 8 1/2 lbs., hens 6 lbs.
