    Breed Information, Comments, and Experience with breed:

    Black Australorp Originated in Australia and were developed from black orpingtons and other breeds such as cochins. They are very sweet, calm,docile and affectionate. My australorp will sit in my lap all day and loves people! They lay brown eggs and have a pretty green sheen to their feathers. They have a single comb, dark eyes and black legs. They are the friendliest chickens I own!

    Even my rooster is docile, unless you mess with his hens lol. I had to put hen saddles on them, and he didn't like me "bothering" his girls. He didn't attack, because it was me. But if I had been a predator, I feel sure he would have attacked. But with people? He's a sweetie.

    Thank you for this information! I just ordered about 4 of these.
    And I was hopping this kind of breed won't attack anybody. Because at my house we have a lot of family get togethers, and there are children. I'm pretty sure the kids would leave the chickens a lone though.
