    Hi... Happy to join as a new member. Proud owner of 2 SLW and 1 Australorpe who were hatched 8-17-2015. They have all just started laying at just past 5 months and their happiness depends a lot on the good advice from BYC forums! when I figure out how to upload a photo, I'll post a pic.

    Welcome to BYC, Berry. Glad you decided to join our flock. You have some great breeds. I especially love Australorps as they are extremely hardy in both heat and cold, calm and gentle (good lap pets), and excellent layers of brown eggs. I'll look forward to seeing your pic. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    These hens are now 5 months old: Above is the surprise found at 5 months, 4 days. The big egg is from Black Jade, the Australorpe.

    Hi Berry and welcome onboard! Congrats on the eggs - its always a great day when a girl lays her first one. I too have a recent layer that lays the odd egg like the whopper in your photo - must make their eyes water eh? [​IMG]
