Crossing the Road
Are Australorps known for maturing early? I am pretty sure I have at least 1 more cockrel...but hes maturing at a much slower rate. I also have 3 Buff Brahma cockrels...pretty sure...but I know they are very slow maturing birds.
I'm not sure. But I was surprised by mine because one would expect the Leghorn-derived California White to have laid first.
