I have 8 hens that are not laying as well as they use to. They do still lay but not enough for it to be reasonable for me to keep them. They are of 7 different varieties including one hen that lays blue tinted eggs. I have raised these chickens since they were days old so they are very gentle with people. They love to roam free and usually stay close, but they are almost always kept in their coop and outdoor run area. If interested, I am more than happy to send pictures.
