Default How many eggs do you get each day?

I have a dozen Australorp pullets so kind of looking to see how many eggs I should expect per day.

How many chickens do you have, what breed and how many eggs a day do you get?

11 red sexlinks, I get 11 jumbo brown eggs everyday without fail even in the winter.
the sex links are 1 1/2 years old.
my other girls have not yet begun to lay.

The Australorp Breed was developed in Australia at the end of the nineteenth century with Black Orpington stock from England. The breed also has genes from Rhode Island Red, White Leghorn, Langshan and Minorca crosses. The purpose of the breed was as a “utility” chicken for both high egg production and meat. It was originally known as the Black Utility Orpingtons. The breed was standardized after World War One and admitted to the Standard of Perfection in 1929 in England under the fitting name Australorp. By the end of World War Two, Australian poultry breeders wrote up their own breed standards, which have been accepted worldwide. Historically, Australorps have been egg-laying champions: an Australorp hen once laid 364 eggs in 365 days.
They are an exceptionally beautiful bird, quite big, with black glossy feathers that have a green sheen and huge black soulful eyes.
I'd say you can look forward to lots of fresh eggs....

We have 16 hens, a combination of Rhode Island Reds, Australorps, Speckled Sussex, Golden Wyandotte and Barred Rocks - 1.5 years old -- when they first started laying last fall we often got 13-16 eggs a day, now we average 10-11.

The Australorps are gorgeous birds and seem to be the "top hens" of our coop. Enjoy them!

I have two australorpe hens and one gives me an egg almost every day, the other one averages every other day. They have been really good layers. I now have 4 younger birds, of different breeds, and will be interested in knowing how good of an egg layer they turn out to be.

I have 5 Lohmann Brown ex free range layers , they were due to be culled at 70 weeks. I got them , and they give me 4 eggs every day. One will come into moult, and stop laying then another one restarts again,. I reckon after the summer they will alll be in full lay.

Our 11 various breed girls give us about 6-8 a day, and the 6 quail pump out 4-5 a day between them. We use them ourselves, give some to friends and neighbours and 'sell' them at work for half the price of free range shop-bought eggs... people queue up for them as they taste so much nicer!
