Australorps are the first chicken breed I began working with over a decade ago. Their gentle nature, large body, and glossy iridescent feathers make them addicting and perfect for any family. They lay medium-large  brown eggs consistently from the fall through the spring and make excellent mothers when broody. They are a dual-purpose breed which means they can be used for both meat and eggs; a perfect breed for any family wishing to be self sufficient. They are fast growing as compared to other breeds (cornish X rock broilers being the only exception) and males are at butcher weight within seven months.

This breed is our favorite to work with on our farm due to their calm, gentle, and reliable nature. They have earned a place in the hearts of many for a reason!
