Hi, all! I've actually been lurking for awhile and figure it's time to say hello. Hello! I adopted these hens from my son's classroom (beautiful timing, there!) They were hatched late spring in 2014. My I-think-she's-an Easter Egger gave me five (green) eggs a week until winter set in; the I'm-told-she's-a Sussex just started squatting a couple days ago. In the next couple of years, I want to get a bigger and better coop and 2 more hens, maybe see about getting a permit for more... Thank you guys for all the shared information! So far, every question I've wanted to ask has already been answered!
