In the 1920s, they became very well-known after setting a world record when a team of 6 hens laid over 1800 brown chicken eggs in a 35 week period. The breed then went on to beat its own record when one hen actually laid 364 eggs in 365 days. Despite all of their grand achievements, the Black Australorp remains a very gentle and passive breed that is cherished by kids and families all over the world.
