Hello everyone, my name is Bill. My daughter and I have just completed builing a coop and picked up 5 hens at a recent swap. We've had the hens for 3 days now and yesterday we were rewarded with our first egg. Kind of exciting! I was told the birds are about 2 years old and their laying has slowed due to the season change and the fact they are starting to molt. I didn't think to ask what their previous diet consisted of , so we have them on layered feed as of now. I did see feed in the store that said it was geared for molt, but wasn't sure they needed it. Anyway We have 2 Speckled Sussex, 1 Buff Orpington, 1 Production Red, and 1 white bird that I was told is a Wyandotte? I'll post a pic of our coop in a bit. Take care!
