Color double laced in shades of brown and black. They are rather docile and good foragers, laying light brown eggs of good size.
The original flock was imported from Germany, and they are still quite rare in this country.

Bantam Black Australorp Hen

Black bird with a beautiful green sheen. The standard variety is well known for laying the large brown eggs and being consistent, productive layers. Like the standard variety, my bantams are very good, consistent layers. Brown egg layer.

While very popular in the Large Fowl Standard, the bantam is extremely rare. The bantam, for years unavailable in America, was reintroduced by me about 15 years ago from Europe. If you should come across another Bantam Black Australorp, you are seeing the progeny of my birds.
