    Do the Black Australop have as big a breast as the dark cornish(purebred)?
    Do they mature as fast?

    From my limited knowledge. Australorp do not have as big of a broad breast but mature faster.

    No, the Australorp will not get as big a breasts as the Dark Cornish, the Cornish have been specifically bred for larger breast..
