hello i am a fairly new chicken owner, been doing it about six months now. I still dont have any eggs, and i think i need to get rid of my rooster because he is quite loud in the morning and my neighbors dont like it. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good home he could go to, he is a speckled sussex and quite beautiful and mild mannered. I also wanted to know if anyone had any ideas to get my chickens laying.... they get organic chicken feed, have access to calcium and grit but they dont free range they have a six foot by nine foot pen because my yard isnt fully fenced in. I got them in july and everyone who sold them to me said that they would be laying in "A couple weeks" well its the end of october and still not a single egg.... my husband is contemplating getting rid of them at this point saying they are too much work because they dont lay.... i also heard of a place in new hampshire that sells layers? does anyone know where in new hampshire?!
