I got my 6 hens about a week ago. They are ex battery chickens and are coming along nicely. However only one of them are laying she has laid an egg every day for 4 days now. I put a rooster with them last week and he is now starting to mount them. Will these other hens eventually start laying or should I just keep them for the fun of it. I will never kill these 6 because of the misery they've endure for the first 18 months of their lives. If I get eggs that's great and if I don't I'll just be out feed with little return. But it will be disappointing.
