Some of the best of this year’s birds in unrelated pairs. There are some lovely examples for you to choose from, and the Australorps in the photos are some of the birds that you can now buy. The cockerels are well developed, handsome birds with a great temperament, and the hens are very friendly and just coming into lay, some have just started.
If you are not familiar with this breed, in short they are large friendly utility birds that have beautiful black and petrol green plumage, best seen in sunlight. They are exceptional layers and the cockerels are generally easy to handle and not aggressive.
