The Black Australorp chicken originates in Australia and it is named for its unique all black coloring. Black Australorp chicken are world-class egg-layers, setting two world records for the most eggs laid in a limited time period. One Black Australorp hen laid 364 eggs in 365 days. With 50 Black Australorp chickens, you can expect to receive a lot of eggs. The hens lay rich brown-colored eggs that are very popular both in stores and farmer's markets. If you are starting with 50 chickens, and you would like to expand, Black Australorps are also very broody hens and will care well for their chicks, so they can also be used for breeding.
