    Hello,

    I have a Black Australorp (father) X Black Brahma (mother) 9 months hybrid rooster.
    I'm curious about the egglaying performance of this bird's future offspring (asuming I cross my hybrid roo with other egglaying hens)?
    Would the Brahma blood impact it much?
    The mother Brahma was a quite good layer.
    What is your experience with Australorp X Brahma crosses? Are they nice birds? How big are they compared with their parents? Do they mature fast? How much they lay? Are they meaty?
    If you have pictures, I'd love to see some of these corsses :D
    I'll post some pictures of my roo later. It's a very nice big bird. :)

    This rooster’s mom was an Australorp & his dad was a gorgeous light Brahma. 214F7F4B-43D7-48F5-A6EA-9016C0AA0DA2.jpeg 7EE830B3-BEF9-4CEC-A43A-E02F5BB9790E.jpeg D44813AE-4E41-456C-8E06-9818F24A5BD4.jpeg
