Well almost. but some of them ARE as big as walnuts! My 6 birds are all standard sized, (not Bantams), and are 21 weeks old now. I've just got my first 2 eggs, from my Australorp in the last 3 days. I realize that Standard size birds do poop big, but these is almost TWICE the size to what I'm used to seeing from my birds. The BO, BPR, and RIR, are looking like they will be laying their first eggs soon. (deep red combs/waddles, squatting, etc.) My 2 EE's don't look to be quite ready for egg laying yet. (pink combs/waddles, no squatting) I'm not sure which ones are laying down these "landmines", but WOW ! It has been unseasonably cool here in So. Cal. for the past month, but today the weather has caught up to the season, and we are just hitting 98/100 degrees. Would the temp change have anything to do with it ? Is this anything to be concerned with?
