Our Hatchery Gladly Accept
Black Australorp Chicken (pullets)
Is an eye-catching bird. It is black with an intense beetle-green sheen on its feathers. Australorps are very good brown egg layers, in fact, one hen still holds the world's record by laying 364 eggs in 365 days under official Australian testing.
Our Australorps are layingHatched May 5, in our hands May 7. Beginning to lay just this week [Sept 24] Do the math - less than 5 months!!! Beautiful big birds, first time ever with this breed, we are impressed & thankful.
Back again with an update on Black AustralorpsWe purchased thru mail in May, it is now mid July, they all live, growing rapidly and are flat out beautiful. They have transitioned well with our older, more wiser chickens, after the usual squawking & pecking, all is fairly content in the chicken yard. We anticipate abundant eggs in the fall, prolly October. I hope to send an update then. We are long time chickners but first time with this breed.
Long time Chickener FIRST time with Black AustralorpsNever ordered chicks by mail, so this is also a first. We have bought started pullets from mostly our Amish community, peeps from TSC, & peeps from broody hens several times, but she does all the work wonderfully, as God intended. Mt Healthy is good on their word, they shipped out our order, with an extra one for a 'thank you' Said they would come Tues, but honestly since we were next state over probably Mon. Sure nuff, Monday 0740 the post office calls, chicks ready for pick up. So i showed the beautiful little buggers to neighbors & family on way back home, into their new larger home they went, light on, food down & a chick waterer and they are doing their thing perfectly. My husband & i enjoy watching chickens, you give them anything & they say thank you by thoroughly enjoying. Mt Healthy did their part perfectly, now it is up to God's care and ours. I expect with their healthy start we will have these chicks for years, which is what we do, LTC chicken home.
