Last summer, we got 3 chicks- a Rhode Island Red, a Buff Orpington, & a Silver-laced Wyandotte. They were doing fantastic, getting 18-21 eggs/week (way more than I was expecting). Sadly, 2 of the girls (RIR & Orpington) were killed by a predator and our Wyandotte is lonely. She was the baby and definitely the bottom of the pecking order. Knowing chickens are such social creatures, we'd like to get 1-2 new chickens. I'm looking for advice on whether we should introduce new girls as chicks, pullets or adults? Having the eggs soon would be ideal to me as our 9 month-old son loves his scrambled eggs with spinach for lunch every day, but I realize that adding full grown hens might not be the best option. TIA for advice & words of wisdom!
