I would like to share this research I found about Easter Egger productivity, I really not so fond of non-productive ornamental breeds, but I really like the looks of the Schijndelaar roosters https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/ae4f/d9522c44c1bf01195d72f7d799a3e5107a17.pdf Excerpt from the article: "The highest hen-day egg production was observed in group L with 283.1 eggs laid until 35 weeks of age and predicted annual egg production of 311.2 eggs that is corresponding to modern accomplishments of high-producing lines of this breed (21). The lowest egg production was registered in decorative breeds Schijndelaar (S) – 95.1 eggs (predicted annual production 132.5 eggs) and Araucana (А) with 148.4 eggs (predicted annual production of 179.4 eggs). In a previous study of ours (Lukanov, unpublished data) estimated hen-day egg production in the Schijndelaar breed was 140.5 eggs, comparable to the present predicted yield. In the available literature, the average annual egg production for Araucana chickens is reported to be about 180 eggs (20), which is in line with the present results. The two experimental groups exhibited a strong heterosis effect induced by the maternal line with regard to this trait. Their productivity was similar to that of White Leghorns. A predicted annual egg production of 270-280 eggs from Easter eggers is a promising result, which could be further expanded with inclusion of other breeder combinations."
