    Anyone know where I can find pictures of Australorp eggs versus Black Stars? I know they both lay brown eggs, but I'm wondering if I'll be able to tell the difference when they start laying.

    I have both of those breeds and I can't tell the difference. The Black Star might be a little larger egg than the other, but I can't really tell.

    I have 10 australorp hens and 1 black star hen. The black star hen lays EVERYDAY. Her eggs are brown too but they are bigger. Nomatter how many eggs I get a day, I can always tell which egg she laid because its always so much bigger.
