Hi my name is Sutton and I'm knew to ownig chickens. I grew up with horses dogs, rabbits and other pets in the country but we never had chickens. We had been talking about it for a while and then impulse bought 3 at TSC the other day. We converted a dog house into a coup and used chicken wire to make a run. Pretty good sized run. We're in MO so it's still a little cold but not too bad. We got two laying 1 yr old black austrolorps and brown leghorn that is two and I guess moulting and not laying at the moment. We've gotten 5 eggs since Saturday from the blacks and for the first day got 2. The leghorn is being more temperamental. I know they're flighty but she doesn't seem to want to get out of the coup much and sh e was fine first few days. Not sure if she's sick or just stressed. She is eating. I guess she's in her molt right now so maybe she's just conserving energy. Not sure I'm going find another spot and post a whole thread about this but if you have any advice let know. Thanks!
