alright we got 4 hens a couple weeks ago and want a few more to keep up w/our egg consumption. the hatchery here sells year old hens they currently only have araucana's (we have 1 right now and reallly like her) we're not really ready to raise chicks but think that we ultimately should. should we get 1-2 araucana's right now and order some pullets? and if so what kind of pullets to get that are easy going, great layers (preferably through winter) and of course still good meat once laying time is over? Im already concerned w/the hens we got they lay almost every day but the whites are super thin and watery so I feel they're a bit past their prime? they freerange and have a stocked feeder of layer feed so I dont think its their food or lack there of! help!
