    My Black Australorp 23 weeks and 4 days old laid their first eggs, Buff Orpington 24 weeks and 4 days are now laying eggs.
    The Australorps, each has laid 2 eggs this week and the buff orpington has laid 9 eggs now in 2 weeks.

    2 Top on left and 1 top right are from the Buff Orpington
    the 2 bottom left from 1 Black Australorp, the 2 - 1 center right and 1- bottom right from my other Black Australorp.For a total of
    7 eggs this week, I have been so excited.

    Thanks for posting this!!!
    I have been looking for pictures of Black Australorp eggs and this was very helpful. We have 6 different breed and our BA is the only one that hasn't laid an egg yet and she is 23 weeks today! I am hoping this week we get something from her. She is a very sweet chicken! :D I don't have to worry yet [​IMG]
