Black Australorp  (pullets/females)

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.

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. Written by nancy on Mon 7 May 2018 5:50:10 PM GMT
Fantastic Cold Hearty Hens during prolonged sub zero temps! Early Maturing!We purchased 6 pullets in May 2014 after determining they would fit our needs for free range and cold heartiness here in Northern New York. They matured and started laying at 20 weeks old, while my sister got some Black Australorps from a different hatchery that didn't start laying until 24-26 weeks! They are very vigorous free range birds and forage well. We have had a nasty winter and our average temperature for the month of February 2015 was 7.2 degrees! These awesome hens still layed 4-5 eggs per day out of 6 hens in an unheated steel barn with minimal supplemental light!!! Thank you! Written by Rachel Zumbach on Thu 5 Mar 2015 5:29:21 AM GMT
Loved the Black AustralorpsI had purchased the Black Australorps based on their reputation for egg laying. They did deliver on the eggs. And as the poster above notes, they are medium in size. However, if you have 15 chickens, you will get 14-15 eggs everyday. I found them to be very quiet, non-aggressive and even friendly. They are one of the few birds that when I sat down to look at them, they would climb into your lap. My family referred to them as kittens. One interesting trait they had was no pecking, but lots of "posturing". They would ruff up their feathers, stand on their toes, spread their wings, and bang into each other, chest to chest. They never pecked each other. I found them to be good foragers. Note, they want to lay eggs while still too young. Back off on the high protein chick starter earlier as compared to most other breeds. I was a bit surprised at how young they were when they first started laying. Overall they made great "suburb" chickens. My next flock that I'm getting later this summer will be all Australorps.
