They should both be about the same. Australorpe might be a bit better.

Crawling about in the season of lots of light but getting darker every minute, and way crazier than usual.

my English Orpingtons lay nearly everyday, I have an Australorpe 14 months old has never layed an egg yet!! I guess it really just depends on the individual chickens.

There are many other great breeds but these are the breeds I know most about.

I guess like with any critter, it depends just as much on the individuals as the breed.  My Brahmas could dig a hole to China in about the same amount of time as it took me to type that sentence! :lau
