The Australorp, which originated in Australia is a single comb, clean legged variety. A nice tame variety for your farm that will produce you a large brown egg. Their larger frame helps them tolerate the cold. An interesting bit of information about this breed is that it is the developed in Australia from Black Orpingtons. I guess this is where the unique name Australorps came from a cross between Australian and Orpintons. A great bird with an excellent disposition and egg laying abilities.
