Hi, I am new to BYC and to raising chickens in general. We live in New Mexico and recently moved from the city (Albuquerque) to a more rural area (Moriarty) and are excited to start with our chickens! I have been reading so much on this site and have learned so much already. So my neighbor is moving and they gave me these 4 older hens and a rooster. I don't know anything about them and am hoping someone could tell me what breed are they are and approximate age. Of course any other info or advice you wish to impart is much appreciated.
These three yellow hens I assume are the same age and breed. They don't lay eggs, but I don't know if that is because its too cold or because the are too old or what. It has only just in the last week or so that the temp has been above 65 during the day.
The black/brown hen and rooster hang out together all the time. The hen lays 1 egg every other day or so.
Thanks in advance!
