I have been very happy with my Australorp hens. They are hardy chickens, excellent egg producers and not too aggressive. They lay light brown eggs and a lot of them!
In my mixed flocks, my Australorps have been some of the hardiest birds. I have never had any trouble with them. They are not the showiest birds, but they have been wonderful for providing my family with lovely eggs. If egg production is a high priority for you, Australorps are an excellent choice.
