Description:

Australorps are the Australian take on the Orpington breed. They are calm and friendly, and excellent layers of light brown eggs. The Australorp's exceptionally soft, shiny black plumage has hints of green and purple in the sunlight. Peaceful and dignified, Australorps are an absolutely delightful bird which we highly recommend to anyone who wants a pet chicken that lays dependably.

Read what our Facebook friends are saying about Australorps:

Determined to lay big brown eggs of the best quality no matter what the weather is like, very good foragers, long productive life. They aren't flashy, but I'll always have some!
~Kristen Sayers

Love my Australops--have had chickens for over 65 years and these are the best all-around breed, for me.
~Robert A Monroe

Ours are sweet tempered, docile and dependable layers. They get along easily with the rest of our flock, which are Columbian Wyandottes, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Marans, and Buff Orpingtons. They enjoy cuddling, and one even will walk up the steps to the deck, look in the glass door to find me if I'm a little late for treat time! AND they have a lovely soft cluck--some of my others are real squawkers!
~Joanne Gunn

Not only are they docile, I love their iridescent feathers. Although they appear black, when the light hits their feathers a certain way they appear green and even purple. Beautiful!
~Valerie Robinson

By far my husband's favorite chicken; they are large gentle birds and excellent layers.
~Rhonda Branum

We have 21 of 'em! Six of our girls are 3 and 4 years old and are still laying 3 to 4 eggs a week. We got 15 chicks last August and they started laying early February. My egg colors range from pale beige to a dark brown with chocolate spots! =) I do a local farmers market and sell the extra eggs. Never have enough.
~Denise Peterman

Australorps are prolific egg layers. They are very friendly, easy to pick up, sit on our lap and LOVE to be petted. Always talking to us with soft chatter, but quick to let us know when something is not right. Ours are not aggressive but they are at the top of the pecking order. They rarely peck others, but when they do, it's always in a very gentle way. I can tell the two Australorps apart from their color, one has bluish purple highlights, the other has green. They are stunning in the sunlight! By far the softest of all our different chickens.
~Arlene Boyle

Beautiful iridescent black feathers, quiet mellow personality, and so many great eggs. These girls produce!
~Tamar Amidon

A great all around breed. Calm, easy to work with and especially well suited for a family with children. Dependable egg layers even in colder climates. When we started out we bought many egg laying breeds to see what suited us as we have young children who take an active role in managing our flock. The Australorp really fit into our family farm life as a great all around breed.
~Kimberly Rodgers

Sweet, docile, and prolific egg layers. What's not to love?
~Jillian Simpson
