Best chickens I have ever owned were Australorps

We have had Australorp chickens two different times. They are beautiful black hens with a greenish blue sheen in the light. They are calm and will bond with their owners. We have had hens and roosters that would eat out of our hands and follow us around the yard. They are great egg layers, but we have never had one set on eggs. The shells are a light cream color. They are not aggressive to the other chickens. They handle the south Texas heat well. They are great foragers and enjoy running through the fields looking for food.
