Which one lays the most eggs over the long term?
You are going to get different answerer's from different people but the record for most eggs laid in a year was seat and currently healed by a black austrlorp but don't expect that.I have never owned a rhode island red but I do have a black austrlorp and she lays very well and is very nice.
I have both breeds.
3 RIR lay 3 - 4 eggs each a week.
15 Australorp 5 - 6 eggs each a week
The Australorp eggs are larger than the RIR as well.
