    I'm absolutely New to chickens. Just got them 2 days ago.

    My husband brought home 3, 6 or 7 month old hens. The Woman who sold them said they have not laid any eggs yet.

    I have absolutely no idea what breeds they are. The woman said banties, but How do I tell? We have 2 white, kind of petite but not too small and one brown with a black tail that is larger.

    Trying to do some research about chickens and the best way to care for them and trying to find out what type of chickens we actually have.

    I am a wife, mother of 3 girls, 1 boy, 2 dogs, 2 kittens, 3 hamsters, 1 fish and now 3 chickens. I come from an urban area to a rural one [​IMG]
