I have three Black Australorps that are just about 7 mo old. Louise has been laying for three weeks almost an egg a day. Solid darker brown. Ann has been at it for two weeks and lays about four to five light brown to pink. Thelma ( get it, Thelma Ann Louise) had lagged behind her comb and waddle are still not in. She eats fine and his as active and happy as the others. Anyway today on egg collection, yes still one of my favorite parts of the day, I collected by far the biggest egg to date and it was speckled. They have not been speckled before and I googled their egg color didn’t mention. Is this unusual? And to be that much larger all of a sudden? Is the Thelma dropping the hammer on her sisters? See pic. The only thing new was yesterday they got a bit of apple for the first time.
