It may very well win the popularity contest in a few countries around the globe - for obvious reasons.


This elegant bird holds the title for the most eggs produced by a single hen in one year, 364 eggs in 365 days.


At HONEYCREEK our aim is to fix the outstanding qualities of this breed in our lines, that have over time been neglected or even omitted in the Australorps we have today.


The more "commercial lines" have brought about a smaller bird with lack of sleekness and elegance. While the "show lines" have maintained these qualities, productivity has in most cases been comprimised. Although the 250 eggs p.a. reported by most for their hens are still good, we feel that it was the record set of 364 which made the Australorp popular and we want to breed the birds that have it all.
