MY Aussies had started popping out eggs at around 4 months old, now they are 5 months old & after going through the winter they started laying such large eggs it worries me ,since they have been laying almost goose size eggs & since a wile back we had a year old NHR that prolapsed from laying such large eggs , but no worries she is doing great now, so it worries me to see our 5 month old Aussies producing such large almost gooses size eggs & at such a young age..??? so thats what i have to report about our experience with our Aussie Girls so far , but still they are the best ever breed of chicken ..!! fun & friendly , such happy beautiful hens with shiny feathers that shimmer green blue & purple & they sure can lay the eggs, so what else could any one ask for..???? & here is a pic of theses giant Aussie eggs from 5 month old Aussies..!! i put them next to regular size hen eggs ,so the 2 eggs on top are Aussie eggs , the other 2 at bottom are not...lol... we got several more giant Aussie eggs this morning, plus the Aussie eggs are very big around to . & next a few of my 5month old Aussies , all piled on top of our hay after the wind blew the tarp off HA
Australorps rarely have egg laying problems. They are a nice balance between hybrids for laying and health.
Enjoy those large eggs!
