About a month ago, my husband's boss got some chickens and set them up in the coop out behind the shop. His wife chose the breeds, bought the feed, etc. My husband is the one responsible for their care, and we share the eggs. She got 2 bantam cochin hens, 1 bantam cochin roo, a rhode island red, and another good egg-layer, although she doesn't know what breed it is. We are hardly getting any eggs. I know cold weather can be the culprit for low egg counts, but we live in Florida and our highs have been anywhere from the 40s-70s in the last few weeks, nothing compared to the rest of the country!! So I've asked my husband for another chicken for my birthday (Sunday), and it sounds like he's going to follow through. Any advice on introducing newcomers to the flock would be greatly appreciated!! We're still really new at this chicken thing but I love it!
