Black Australorp 
 
The Black Australorp is a great dual-purpose chicken. They have a pinkish white skin and plump bodies
which makes them dress out nicely. These chickens have glossy all black feathers that have a green and
purple sheen to it when in the sun. They are excellent layers of large brown eggs.  A quiet and calm
chicken that is heat and cold tolerant.
