Hello - New to chickens and loving every minute of it!! We have 11 Light Brahmas that are six months old. They just started laying a couple weeks ago! So proud of the girls!! Found this site to help w/ some issues we were having that have now been resolved, thanks to you fine folks. Thanks for that!! No more egg eating and they're all laying where they're supposed to! GO GIRLS!! They know how proud of them I am at this point w/ all of the praise and babytalk they get from me when I go out to collect their eggs, which seems to work the best right after dark when they go to roost. We had a bald eagle hanging around today so they had to stay in, but they don't seem to mind. It's still very much winter here and they don't seem to like the cold and wind either. Looking forward to learning a lot more and hopefully sharing stories, as well. L.
