Finally I got all my chickens figured out (4) unfortunately we had to get rid of one because it turned out "she" was a he and in the city i am in they are illegal to have, we replaced him with a naked neck who we know is a she so i am pretty happy.
My first pair (maran and ameraucana/easter egger) are almost 5 months (in 5 days to be exact) and my other pair (silkie/naked neck) are 4 months and 2 days to be exact! I have started them on mash (they said this was ok and i wanna make sure it is!) i also give them some scratch and vegetables and fruits depending on what i make that day, we also give them oyster shell and grit.
I wanna make sure i am doing EVERYTHING carefully and right because i want the best for my chickens. Due to age when are they to be expected to start laying? I have never had chickens before so i just wanna give it my all.
Heres some photos of the girls, still not sure if Ling Ling (silkie is a boy or not, lets hope not)
These photos are from a little less than a month, so they have gotten bigger since.
Miss Cleo(maran), Mama (ameraucana/easter egger not even sure at this point I've heard mixed) Ling Ling (Silkie), Nugget (naked neck)
