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

Belated Congratulations! One of my 24 week old Australorps also just laid her first egg. Amazingly her sister looks like she's 2 months behind in development. Hormones do funny things....

The brown one is the real egg, the white one is a fake, just for comparison.

Nina, on the right, is the one. Trixie on the left is the same age, but obviously far from laying age.

For the ones that browse these 1st egg threads and are getting impatient.....
Trixie is now almost 8 months old and is finally developing her comb and showing signs of getting ready for her 1st egg. Her sister Nina is laying for months and she's the same age.
