It is a busy time here at Australorp Poultry Table Top. We have our incubators going full time to start our supplies of chicks for the coming season. Fertility of the eggs is excellent running at 90 - 95%. We are hoping to be overrun with chicks starting on Wednesday 25 July. Orders for day old chicks are now being accepted and deposits for 8 week old pullets are also being accepted. If you are after fertile eggs I can take your order and fit you in between filling up my incubators.
It is also busy cleaning the seeds from Autumn collection. The seeds are nicely dried out so it is just a matter of getting to each tyoe of seed one at a time. It is important to thoroughly clean the sieves between different types of plants so as to avoid contamination of the seed packets. Now is a great time to order your seeds ready for Spring planting or if you have a warm sheltered spot get a head start by planting them in punnets until the soil warms up.
