Australorps have an Australian origin and were developed from Langshans and Orpingtons. They were bred with the goal of high egg yields in mind. They became a worldly favorite in the 1920’s.

Australorp's wide bodies make for a great dual purpose table bird. They are a calm and friendly breed. Being such a docile breed makes them ideal for any family looking for a pet and a high producing bird.

Australorps have very soft, black plumage that shines with iridescent blues and greens in the sunlight. Legs are a black-slate color with white foot pads. Chicks are black with white faces and chests.

The record for laying the most eggs in a year (364 eggs!) is held by an Australorp! Australorps can be known to lay with a heavy bloom at times.

Hens lay about 300 eggs a year.

Cocks weigh 9-10 pounds full grown.

Hens will top out at 7-8 pounds.
