I currently have 11 BO and they are only 11 weeks old so I have not personally seen their egg production. So I would like to know for the BO: (per hen) -How many eggs do they lay per week? -How large are the eggs on average? -What shade of brown? I am also curious about Australorps. I heard they are very similar to the BO but just a little smaller but lay a lot better. -How many eggs do they lay per week? -How large are the eggs on average? -What shade of brown? I am also very curious on what the hens turn out to look like if you crossed a BO Rooster with a BA Hen or a BA Rooster with a BO Hen. If people have these crosses how to they compare to the individual breeds? I really like both of these breeds because they have great personalities and look nice.
