Hi everyone, (this is my first post, just joined today, yipee!) and I am VERY new to keeping chickens. Purchased (just this afternoon, in fact) 2 orpington/RIR cross hens. At least, that's what they told me they were! They are BIG girls!! Very pretty and seem fairly easygoing. My question is, for those of you with experience with this cross, are they good layers?? I told them I wanted good, large laying hens and this is what they sold me.
Any info/tips/tricks for a newbie would be appreciated! Thank you!!!
