    Howdy yall. Does anyone know how well the Jubilee Orpingtons lay? Greenfire and Sacre lines. Average number of eggs per week? Size of the eggs? Thanks in advance!

    Are we talking about a certain strain? Jubilee is a variety of Orphington so it would lay the same as any other. But saying that Jubilee is normally developed for show it might lay less than one you find at a hatchery or a feed store because they were selected for their laying abilities.

    Thanks for the response. I was wondering specifically about the greenfire and Sacre lines.
