Product Description

Black Australorps originated in Australia and were bred for egg production. They are excellent winter laying hens that produce brown eggs and need to be kept cool in the warmer, summer months. The breed is dual purpose as they are also good for meat. Black Australorps have a quiet and gentle temperament and stand confinement well. As babies, they are black with white underneath and small white patches around their head and wings. When mature they have black feathers with a greenish sheen. Bottoms of feet are all black. The typical weight for females is 5 lbs. and males is 7 lbs.

Safe Handling Instructions:

It is important to care for and love your new poultry, but you must also protect yourself. Salmonella, a common cause of food borne illness, can be spread by direct contact with animals that carry the bacteria.

Some Safe Handling Tips are:

  • Avoid contact with poultry manure. Adults should clean cages frequently.
  • Carefully and thoroughly wash hands with soap and warm water after handing anything in the chicks environment.
  • Do NOT nuzzle or kiss your chicks, ducklings, turkeys, etc.
  • Keep poultry outside, and especially out of areas where food is prepared.
  • Supervise children when handling poultry, and ensure they wash their hands after contact. Children under 5 years of age and people with weakened immune systems should not handle poultry.
