Encompassing "Table Top Seeds"
Welcome to Australorp Poultry. Worried about the nutrition of the eggs you buy from the shop? Why not join the backyard chook keeping revolution. Every average sized backyard can fit a chicken tractor in which to house your 2 - 3 Australorp chickens. Send the kids out to collect the eggs for a fresher than fresh omelette. Enjoy getting to know your chooks.
We specialise in Large Black Australorps, the only Australian breed of backyard chicken, bred specifically for our ranges of climate in Australia. We source our stud Australorp roosters from show winning blood lines so we can guarantee our genetic superiority. We breed Australorp chickens throughout the warmer months and take orders as early as June. Our Australorp poultry are completely free range, in fact we have built a 2m high fence around the 2 acre paddock to protect them from fox attack. We are a boutique Australorp breeding stud so our chooks are quiet and used to people. They are all hand reared by us. They follow us around when it is feed time. They return to their chicken tractor on their own accord at sunset.
Here we see one of our breeding Roosters, Alexander, with 2 of his girls. We try to keep the rooster to hen ratio no higher than one to 10. We run two separate show blood lines so there is a good variety of strong Australorp genetics. We sell our pullets at 8 weeks of age as they can be sexed reliably then and they can settle in to their new family as they continue to grow to adulthood.
FERTILE EGGS AND DAY OLD CHICKS
For those who want to have a go at raising their own chicks we sell fertile eggs. our method of packaging has to date been very successful with posting and we have found Australia Post to be on the whole reliable. We also sell day old chicks to order and by pick up only.
TABLE TOP SEEDS
We also sell Organic Home Grown seeds. We have some special multi packs for specific purposes eg Poultry Health and some single vegetable and herb seed packets. These are available seasonally as we are only a small producer. Please see "Order Form" Page for current seed availability list and prices.
Please look around the site and get back to us with any orders or questions.
