    Not too many BYC members in your part of the world, but hopefully someone will see this.

    Keep in mind, your 5 RIR hens will probably start laying any time now. They just over 27 weeks? So probably within the next month, hopefully sooner. ANY birds you buy MUST be quarantined for a minimum of 30 days and will probably not lay for a couple weeks anyway, since chickens do not like moving and usually need time to adjust.

    I know you really want eggs, but now is when you need to be patient. Read this thread about quarantine, it's very informative.
