Now, I was raised with cows, pigs, goats, etc... But, for whatever reason, we didn't have chickens. As I figured Oboma would be elected, I suspected I might want to have some chickens for food when the dollar crashes and all the wealth I did have is redistributed or repremations are made. I obtained 6 chickens, two for each of my little kids. They came from a well know chicken farmer. Here I am 8 months later and I haven't seen the first egg. I do not have enclosed boxes in the coop. I made shelves with flips on edge. The chickens remove what hay I try to give them for nesting. Do my chickens need the remada inn or something to lay? Then as Obomacare began going into effect, I lost my six figure job and now am headed into poverty. I really need those eggs. What I didn't need was to awake this week with a women's rights movement going on in my hen house. Apparently, I own some code pink feminist hens who have decided to crow like a rooster. They don't have spurs. And I haven't seen one of my hens wearing a big belt buckle or a mullet hairstyle yet. But, are these birds going to lay or what? Any answers would be appreciated.
