And when the wyncottes start laying, if not already, do they lay small,mother progress to larger.
I also received a tiny egg, 2 times in 2 weeks. Can it be my hens that lay well, or can it be my new 4 month old, barely 4 mo th old, Wynncourt hens, ?

I am afraid I will lose my hens

It free range them, since so small, but wanted to make,sure I am not harming them by not free ranging. Shall I...
Thank you for info. Can we put the met hens in same coop as hens, but, except separate them with wire divider? And how much room would you say the meat hens need? Are the meat hens all female? Any meat males? Do,they leave their coop, to,free range, how do,you house yours? Thank you,
i would like to start raising meat birds. What are the best one to get, how to rise them, can I put them in same coop as my hens?
