I received two hens and a coop from a friend that moved away around Aug. 8, 2014. These girl had not started laying yet. Is was any day until they did. Finally they started around Aug. 22. I have been getting two eggs ever since then with maybe a 2-3 day pause when I moved the coop to a bigger spot. I believe they are happy birds. I let them out of the run when I can keep an eye on them. The girls name are Peep and Flap. Peep looks to be a leghorn that lays brown eggs. Flap is a RIR also lays brown eggs. I never know about chickens so with some research on the internet and mostly on Backyardchicken.com I have learn to take care of my girls in the city. I will attach pictures so all can see the beautiful hens that I have. Well they make me happy and my kids too. Peep pecking the deck. Flap posing for picture.
