Austra White Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts

Austra White Chicken Breed Information:

Our Austra Whites are a cross between Cackle Hatchery® ’s pedigree Black Australorp rooster and Cackle Hatchery® ’s White Leghorn hens (parent stock shown).  They were first developed in the early 1900's. This cross produces offspring that are very good layers throughout the year and lay a large off white/cream color egg.   The Austra White pullet will be white with little black specks in some feathers.  This cross is considered to be a heavier breed and their disposition is calmer than the pure Leghorn chicken breed. There are many benefits raising baby chickens from this cross. These hens will lay a lot of large eggs; have good feed to egg production ratios and good for chickens for backyards. Raising chickens for eggs at home can be fun and relaxing. Free range chicken eggs are great tasting eggs and this hybrid chicken breed has good reflexes for predator avoidance, however, they are white and easily seen. We hope you try the Austra White Chicken hen from our chicken hatchery for chickens for sale cheap (cheep, cheep).
