Our Black Australorp chicks were born 12/14/20. Recognized by the APA in 1929 they were developed in Australia in the early 1900's and still hold records for egg laying.  Hens are large, gentle, cold hardy, dual purpose birds laying up to 200 eggs per year weighing 6.5-8 lbs. at maturity.

Crows are a natural enemy of hawks.  Some flock owners say that having Australorps in your free ranging flock prevents hawk attacks perhaps because the hawks mistake them for crows. We will be conducting that experiment in March 2021 once our chicks are large enough to free range.
