Just a few weeks ago, we got some new Barred Plymouth Rock hens that we plan on entering in the 4-H festival. It's our first year showing, so its very exciting! But, my other chicken, a 2 1/2 year old Red Star named Kio, just got over her bout of some illness or other where she was very emaciated and not laying. Nowadays, all she has is a couple of molting feathers and all the fat on her body she ever needs! Plus, she started laying again. The problem is, from the anibiotics, we can't eat them for another month! Hahaha!
