Living in Carlisle PA. We have two little bantams in an eglu. The eglu was given to me by one of my sisters who thought I would really enjoy having chickens. In fact it came occupied by these little bantams which I called my practice chickens. They are over 5 now, I am calling them geriatric practice chickens. They only lay under optimum conditions ie when the weather is perfect and they are completely happy with their feed, water, and my attitude! LOL...Weather has been so brutal here have not had an egg for several months now. Looking forward to enlarging on my practice chicken knowledge here.
