My Black Australorp pullets started laying last week. I got my first egg on Wednesday, three more the next day, and one or two every day since. I have 11 Australorp hens, so they should keep us well-supplied with eggs.
|Pretty nice size for pullet eggs, I think.|
Their hatch day was May 13, so the first eggs came at 23 weeks old. I should be getting eggs throughout the winter. :) Even before they started molting, my old ladies were down to about 2 to 4 per day for 16 hens, so it's definitely time for some new blood.
