Black Australorp Chickens

A champion egg-laying chicken breed, the Black Australorp was introduced to the United States around the 1920s. The Australorp was originally developed in Australia from the Orpington Chicken to create a breed with a higher quality egg production without sacrificing too much size and meat quality. This breed is now a competitive contender for one of the most popular "backyard chicken" breeds as well as the most productive egg laying breed.

The Black Australorp Chicken is extremely hardy in most climates and can easily compete as one of the best layers of brown eggs among the heavy chicken breeds. Similar to the Buff Orpington Chickens, these birds are calm and docile, easily handled, and bear confinement with no problem.

Black Australorps are just slightly smaller than the Orpington but the males can still weigh in around 8.5 pounds. The relatively large size and pinkish white skin help this bird to dress nicely once the chicken develops its full plumage. This heavy bird is covered in glossy black iridescent plumage that has a greenish purple tint in the sunlight, and a whole flock of Australorps paints a strikingly attractive backyard scene. The Australorp is an excellent dual purpose chicken that can greatly be utilized in confined backyard environments as well as more open farm coops.

Tuff Cookies March 8, 2016
Reviewer: Julie Townsley from Twain, CA United States  
From the purchase of this chicken breed of the past, that I have purchased, they are great eggs layers. Almost everyday you get an egg. The big star rating that I am giving them today is that out of all the chicks that I ordered the Black Australorp chicks survived the shipping trip. I purchased them in February, in which there was a freeze right at the time of my shipping. Almost half of my chicks died. But all of the Black Australorps survived. They are tuff little cookies. Great thing about e-Fowl is that they refunded me for those that didn't make it. I don't think I will ever order chicks in February again!
