Australorp Utility (Pure Breeds point of lays)


When we had a commercial laying farm the pure Australorps were the bird we stocked the majority of the time. My father fell in love with these when he was at Gatton College in the 1930’s and the Australorps there won the world egg laying competition. After many years searching we had given up hope of seeing the compact sized great layer that was previously available. The Australorps that dominate today are huge show birds rivaling the size of a sussex and have very average egg laying ability. We recently managed to find some of the pure laying strains and have set about breeding them with a view to see them populate Australian backyards once again.
Vaccinated Chicks $12.50
Point of Lays $49

Black Australorp Hybrid Point of Lay


The black hybrid are a Australorp cross which produces a very good layer. These birds are distinguished from the pure Australorps by their medium size, some red feathering around the neck and a red (not black) eye. Most pure Australorps these days are kept for showing and their egg laying has suffered. The hybrids however should lay around 290 eggs per year.
