Black Australorps originated in Australia. They were developed from the Black Orpington. The Black Australorp is one of the best layers of brown eggs. Black Australorps are beautiful birds, and when they are standing in the sun, their black plumage has a lustrous green sheen. They would make a great addition to anyone’s back-yard flock! All our chickens are fed a non-GMO feed, and will generally be 8-12 weeks old at the time of arrival.
