The Australorp has white skin.  The shanks and toes are dark slate. The undersides of their feet are pinkish-white to grayish.  Australorps have intense beetle-green sheen on the black birds, dark eyes, deep bodies and are very active.  Their beak is black, eyes are dark brown.  They have red earlobes and moderately large red single comb with no more than 7 points.  In the U.S. they are found in only one color variety, black, although there are other colors recognized outside this country.
