Autralorpes are beautiful chickens they are black and shiny when they are in the sun their feathers have green hue. However they are not good if you want a chicken as a pet I raised them for meat and they are great for this but they rooster are aggressive they will run up to you and spur you if they have the chance. The hens I kept around for eggs they have great brown eggs and they taste just wonderful. If you are using them as meat they are ready to go after about nine months. I got some lovely roasters out of these roosters. Then hen do like to brood on their nest so you might have a problem getting the eggs I just run them off first shut the door and collect the eggs.
