Chicken newby!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello friends! I am new to chickens, bought 4 young red buff hens from a farm a little over 48 hours ago! So far we are loving the chickens. They are so sweet and quite funny to watch! They have already layed 8 eggs!, We live in southeastern North Carolina and are starting our homestead on 2 acres! Looking forward to meeting you all.

Welcome to BYC.  Sometimes after laying the eggs that are 'in process' hens will take a temporary break in egg laying after being moved to a new home.  So if they stop laying don't be concerned.  They will restart production eventually.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
