    I'm new to this site and new to keeping chickens. I have started with six sexlinks (three red and three black.) I have them in a chicken tractor that I move onto anew piece of lawn every day or two. We are having a blast and getting 2-3 eggs every day.

    Hi Caroline,

    I live in Boring, Oregon (a place name, not an adjective).

    My wife's cousin gave us six of their mixed-breed hens and they only laid 2-3 eggs in two months. So we traded them for these sexlinks and immediately started getting 2-3 eggs every day.
