Selectively Bred Black Australorps and Midget White Turkeys in the Sacramento Valley
At Ransdell Ranch we are endeavoring to live off our land in a sustainable way, and after our disappointment with the lack of vigor in our hatchery chickens, we found Black Australorps to be the perfect all around homestead bird. They are robust, excellent brown egg layers that also provide a nice roast for dinner; leaner than a broiler and more flavorful. They’re active foragers and yet very mellow to be around. Plus, they’re beautiful to look when they sparkle in the sun!
We are building on the solid genetic foundation of Forest Farm birds here on the west coast, with a special interest in selecting for long term productivity. We select based on APA standards for excellent type; including measured body capacity and laying records.
We are dedicated to preserving and improving these fine heritage birds.
