    I have four hens who are 11 months old. I have an Arcauna, Plymouth Rock, Barnevelder and a black Orpington. I am a complete novice and have joined so that I can learn how to better care for my hens and share information.

    Hi Anita and welcome to BYC.

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link - as mentioned by Cavemanrich.

    Best wishes
