IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Eggs are collected fresh on Mondays from our breeding flock and shipped Tuesdays by USPS Priority Mail or FedEx. Hatching Eggs are labeled with breed code to help with ID during incubation. Eggs can be shipped year-round, but please use your own discretion when ordering during extreme weather. We guarantee that your eggs will arrive unbroken, but will not guarantee your hatching success because of the many variables with shipping, incubating and hatching. Breakage must be reported upon arrival.
Black Australorp are layers of large brown eggs and are a hardy choice for the homestead flock. Australorps are friendly and quiet and when fully mature, their black feathers have a beautiful green sheen. As the chicks grow, they will have white-tipped feathers until fully mature. The Black Australorp is the perfect choice for a hardy breed that will keep your egg basket full during the winter.
