    My chicken adventure started around 11pm the other night when my girlfriend spotted some chickens on the side of the road. Needles to say I caught them. They then stayed in my garage for 2 days while I built them a coop. I attached a 8'x8' "run" to a wooden shed attached to my garage. I do not know how old they are or even if they can still lay eggs. Will they not lay for awhile after stressful situation? I think one is a buff orpington (90% sure) but im not sure about the other.

    Hope to see some of yall at the chicken swap at bent creek!

    ill post pics of them once I figure out this pic posting thing
