Hi-- I have been a lurked for a few weeks now and am amazed at the wealth of information available here! I have one buff Orpington and 3 big white hens that lay brown eggs, not sure of their breed. The white ones, Henny, Penny, and Jenny, are probably 5-6 months old and only one is laying so far. Dixie, the BO, is 3 months old, no eggs yet. We have a small coop made from a kit and are in the process of modifying a cedar child's playhouse to be a bigger house for them. The rest of the gang? My DH, one DD, 2 DS's, Gracie a grey mini schnauzer, Tucker a male terrier mix, Madison a 4 lb chihuahua, and Pepper a rescue pup, some sort of terrier. Also Hunter, my black and white cat. Thanks for all I have learned here!
