Description

We have always raised and bred a variety of heritage breed chickens at our regenerative farm in the Byron Bay Hinterland. The current free-range flock is a mix of Australorp, Plymouth Rock and Light Sussex breeds. Alongside the birds, we also sell fertile eggs, point of lay, and a rooster of two.

It takes a lot longer for heritage breeds to start laying compared to the hybrids. Here is a bit of information I discovered from the McMurray Hatcher (the world’s rare breed poultry headquarters).

Hybrids
Most of the egg laying hybrids start laying at 4 to 5 months of age. Hybrid egg layers are bred by crossing two different lines or breeds. They are known for their excellent productivity and high feed conversion ratio.

Non-Hybrids (Heritage Breeds)
Most non-hybrids start laying at 5 to 7 months of age. These include New Hampshire Reds, Black Australorps, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, Wyandottes, and many of our other breeds.

If you are interested in having a go at heritage chickens we have unsexed heritage cross bred chooks available. Enquire now.
