Hi, I have three chickens - a,silver grey Dorking (Violet), red blue-laced Wyandotte (Clementine) and a mottled Java (Aster). I got them as chicks from a local feed store, now they are about 25 wks old. My father started raising leghorns and quickly moved on to Americaunas and orpingtons and other pretty birds. So I guess you could say it runs in the family! I've been reading BYC forums since I've gotten my chicks but now I have a question that I haven't seen addressed yet, so I thought I'd better join,and see if anyone else has a juvenile hen that has laid only one egg is 2+weeks?! At any rate, I enjoy reading everyone else's chicken stories.
