    Lauriejo from N.Michigan here! Love the site and pics! Im a newbie chicken owner. 2 weeks...so far so good. I bought adult hens. Getting a dozen every other day!!
    I have 7 hens and 1 banty rooster. One hen is a banty tooo. She lays the biggest easter eggs!!
    Trying to teach them how to get to their outdoor pen. Fun!!

    Hello and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new flock! It can take chickens a while to learn routines, where things are located and just calm down in general. Don't rush them to learn too fast. Once they settle in, they will know the ropes and be comfortable and happy.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!

    Sounds like you have some serious layers in your flock. Would love to see a photo of your bantam hen,
