MUCKY BOOTS FARM has hatching eggs available from our champion BLUE AUSTRALORP breeding stock. All our birds are GMO free and pasture fed. These are exceptional birds that are bred to the standard and for large size and weight. Our lovely rooster, Hector, won Best Australorp Rooster and Best Standard Breed Rooster at the Cowichan Fair, and this fall we added some new champion bloodlines (out of Langley) and we're very excited about their potential. Please check out our blog for more details. We love our chickens!
Australorps are a large, dual purpose, heritage breed known for their docile temperament and fluffy feathers. The hens are excellent winter layers and cockerels make great eating at about 20-22 weeks.
Hatching eggs are $30 per dozen.
We also have fertile hatching eggs available from our Champion Black Australorp and Welsummer breeding flocks.
