Valley Hatchery is excited to offer the Black Australorp Started Pullets, a breed that is as unique in appearance as it is in character. These all-black chickens captivate with their iridescent hues that shimmer in the sunlight. Known for their dual-purpose capabilities, Black Australorps grow quickly and, though initially shy, soon reveal their suitability as wonderful backyard chickens.

These chickens require some special attention, particularly due to their propensity for obesity. Allowing them free-range time, especially in favorable weather, is key to their wellbeing. On the egg production front, each hen impresses with an annual yield of 200 to 280 large light-brown eggs, averaging about 3 to 5 eggs per week. When fully grown, the males reach a weight of 8.5 to 10 pounds, while females average between 6.5 and 8 pounds.

Recognized by the American Poultry Association (APA) and featured in the English Class, Black Australorps are not just about their striking looks. They are a hardy breed, with a lifespan of 6 to 10 years, which can be extended with proper care. If you’re looking for an active, mostly docile chicken with a distinctive appearance, the Black Australorp is an excellent choice.

At Valley Hatchery, our Started Pullets, aged between 15-20 weeks and vaccinated against Marek’s Disease, are guaranteed to be in top health. We also offer Black Australorp chicks for those who prefer to start with younger birds. Choose Valley Hatchery for a Black Australorp Started Pullets experience that promises health, beauty, and productivity.
