Hi, everyone!! So, I've been compiling a list of all the chicken breeds I want, but I've hit a bit of a snag in my decision making process. I'm having A LOT of trouble finding ACTUAL NUMBERS for the annual production rates of virtually every breed I'm interested in. Every time I try to look it up, they give me some useless word to describe their production. "Medium" or "Good" or "Fair" really doesn't tell me jack squat. So, I was hoping I could list the breeds I'm interested in here and see if anyone out there keeps any sort of records on egg production for these birds. Please, if you can, give me actual numbers, as this is a big determining factor in which breeds I will be getting. Here are the breeds I'm interested in:

Barred Rocks (any Plymouth Rock stats will do)

Wyandottes

Orpingtons

Australorps

Ameraucanas and/or Easter Eggers (I know the numbers for Easter Eggers will vary greatly, I just want a ballpark figure)

Sorry to rant, everybody, this has just been driving me a bit batty trying to find this info. Any help you can provide would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!

Lindsey
