The black Australorps are a big beautiful breed. We had two roosters, though we had originally wanted hens for laying so we had to return them to the farm. We were all sad as this is a wonderful breed of chicken and the farm had no hens. They are docile and friendly, even the roos. They are majestic-looking creatures, with rich black feathers. The males had a loud crow, but they weren't aggressive, even when they came of age.
