I've got an Astralorp rooster, wondered about this big guy and the EE'S, if you know what I mean.
EE's are just general standard sized. My Aussie girl is a little but bigger, but not by much. You should have no worries with an Aussie roo and EE girls.
about 4 1/2 to 5 pounds , they are fine to cross on your rooster
I would say it depends on what your EE is made up of. My EEs range from 6-8 pound hens with 7-9 pound roosters.
My Easter Egger rooster is pretty big. At least as big as a standard R.I red roo. Mine's pretty mellow, though, and doesn't mind bantam roosters (I've had up to three other roosters in the pen with him and he doesn't bother them).
MY EE Rooster is still the king of the flock after 2 years with many fighting for the position, he is large with nice spurs and is really the best with the hens.
Our EE's look pretty small, but boy are they dense! They feel like they weigh 20+ pounds! Its incredible how fat they are lol!
