Hello, I got a 'mix of layers' from the blue seal feed store.... I thought that meant that they would be GOOD layers. I got 6 chickens and have been having a lot of fun watching them grow and posting pics on here and having people help me figure out what they are.... What I am finding is that the breeds that my friends on BYC are telling me I have - I later research to find that they are not great layers! So.... I am asking you - the experts to tell me what you know about the breeds I THINK I might have - in regards to egg production. PLEASE! I have a Buff Orp (what I've read tells me she'll be a great producer) I have 2 Silver Spangled Hamburgs (not great layers from what I've read - and small eggs) 2 Dark Cornish hens (sounds like more of a meat bird... I'm not eating my pets! I've named them! ) a Polish hen (she's awful sweet and pretty, but small eggs, not a great layer, right?) Is my research sound, or can any one give me good new?! Do I only have ONE good layer in the whole bunch?!
