- Dual Purpose Heritage Breed -

Black Australorp

This dual purpose heritage breed was originally developed in Australia as a utility breed with a focus on egg laying. They were developed in the period from 1890 to the early 1900's.  They are very hardy and thrive in our Canadian climate. Australorps are a fantastic breed for the homestead or backyard. This flock has been selectively bred for utility, hardiness and temperament. Like all our chickens, these are free ranged and fed organic grain and produce. No antibiotics or hormones.
