We bought our 6 hens from a local farmer just over a week ago; ever since then, my husband & I have disagreed on what they are. So I turn to my knowledgeable new friends at BYC to help identify them. We have 4 red hens: And 2 black hens: We have gotten 14 eggs from them since bringing them home last Saturday evening, and have loved watching them! I haven't named them yet...still watching them to learn their personalities. We just call them "The girls" for now. We built our coop, but it is still a work in progress...in fact, we had to finish enclosing it last Sunday just to put them in it!
