My wife and I live in the central part of the state and decided to get some chickens,we are both 50+,so why not. We purchased 5 hens and 1 rooster,they are full grown,3 to 4 yrs. old.We built a small coop for them,4'x6' with a run of 10' x 6'.We have owned them about 10 days now,and no one is laying eggs yet. We feed them laying crumbs and cracked corn and a few table scraps.They are Rhode Island Red and Buff Orfington. Our coop is smaller than the one they were in. Are they upset from the move. BackYardChickens has got to be the best site!!!!
