I am considering "retiring" my RIR's and getting a batch of Black Aussies considering their winter egg production reputation. My question pertains to feed consumption, however. Are they heavy eaters compared to the RIR's? If so, to what extent?

My BA's eat about the same as my black sex links, who eat about the same as my Production Reds, Barred Rocks,etc.


Everyone just eats as much as they want. I definitely would not say I see the BA's at the food more than the others, as mine tend to eat as a flock. Mine are not even much larger than the other girls, they are just a little taller, their feet are HUGE and they just generally look 'older'
