Item Information

Australorps, an Australian breed, were selected for high egg production, and were developed primarily from Black Orpingtons that were exported from England in the 1890s to early 1900. Australian breeders selected these large Black Orpingtons because of their efficient egg production and Orpington shape. Today, the Australorp is still a favorite egg producer in small and backyard flocks. Despite their record-breaking egg production, they are still considered a dual-purpose breed that grows at a good rate and has a well-fleshed carcass. The plumage is pure black with an intense beetle-green sheen that is breathtaking when seen in the sunlight. Their legs and toes are also black while the bottoms of the feet are white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great chickens 2 out of 10 died but the rest are great, still waiting to see if we have all hens
Date published: 2019-03-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Suspect batch Ordered 20. All arrived seemingly OK, but within two days 12 had died and by the third day I had only 3 left. Tractor supply to their credit re ordered me 12 according to the warrantee, but although the ticket said 12, I only received 10. Have to see how these survive. I'm not new to raising chicks and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what was going on apart from some virus or disease. So I've wasted a lot of money buying online instead of going to the store.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So So I ordered 10 female Australorp chicks. They sent 12. Three died within the first 48 hours of arrival for no apparent reason. Of the remaining 9 chicks, 3 of them turned out to be male. So I guess I'm 60 percent satisfied. It's too early to comment on their egg production. I'll see if I can update this review in a year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Live products I got my chicks there days ago as ordered, but one has already died two days later of unknown reasons. I did receive 12 instead of 10 just in case this happens, but the additional two were not the same breed. I wish the extra were the same breed, now I have less than I ordered and two I did not want.

how long before I can put my baby chicks outside in a coop?

Asked by: gec315
Generally when the chicks are fully feathered around 8-10 weeks and if the temperature outside in 65-70 degrees you may transition them

are they pullets OR STRAIGHT RUN

Asked by: farmer3
You may order Pullets or Straight Run on the website. When choosing each bird just make the determination by selecting Black Australorp Pullets (Female) or Black Australorp Straight Run. Thanks for inquiring
