This breed originated in Australia developed from BlackrnOrpingtons imported from England; and the emphasis of the breeding program wasrnon egg production without sacrificing too much in size and meat quality. Somernsensational results were made in the Australian program, and one hen set arnlaying record of 364 eggs in 365 days. Introduced into this country in thern1920's, they have become useful and popular and are certainly one of the bestrnlayers of light brown eggs of all the heavy breeds. A flock of Black Australorps havernglossy black plumage which has a greenish-purple sheen. They are big birds,rncockerels weighing 6 to 8 pounds at maturity and pullets 5 to 7. They have arnpinkish white skin and plump bodies which dress out nicely once the birds haverntheir final plumage. Pullets mature early and many will be in productionrnbetween 5 and 6 months of age. They are quiet, gentle, and stand confinementrnwell. Baby chicks are black with a good deal of white in the underparts andrnsmall white patches around the head and wings. We have handled this breed forrnyears and think it is one of the best of the heavy breeds.
