Awaken

the annual Accredited Professional Members’ exhibition at CraftACT: Craft and Design Centre, including Breakfast with Australorps by Ruth Hingston

Awaken to the rooster crowing and hens clucking as they lay a new egg for the day. Then enjoy a fresh egg with a cup of tea for breakfast.

Australorps are a poultry bird, bred (designed) in Australia. They inherit their distinctive black plumage from black Orpington poultry stock imported from England. Australorps have an excellent laying record. They mature early and will continue to lay through winter. They are a good hen for domestic chook pens, being docile, hardy and easily handled. Australorp hens are excellent mothers to their chicks.

Chicks have paler undersides when hatched that turn black as their feathers develop. Eggs are usually a pale brown.
