In the Brooder
- Apr 11, 2013
I am new to this chicken raising. I have 7 baby chicks but we went to an auction because I wanted some laying hens (I couldn't wait for my 7 chicks to start laying). I bought a Bantam and 2 RIR. I thought they were all laying hens. The Bantam clucks but has not laid any eggs and the 2 RIR are bigger then the Bantam but I noticed they still peep? I have no idea how old they are as they did not state this at the auction!
