Hi! I've had a pretty rough year... Lots of personal issues. I now find myself a solo mother of 4 wee kids living on a shoestring. I have, for years wanted to raise chickens.. Finally now I am on my own nobody is going to tell me I can't! We got our first 4 girls two weeks ago. 2 Hamburgs and 2 Easter eggers. I bought them as POL pullets and was told they may or may not have yet started to lay. So we have been waiting for the egg production to start. We've been unsure wether our lack of eggs is due to being not quite there age wise or stress from the move. Anyway... One of the girls (the lowest in the pecking order) started on Thursday! We've had 3 eggs in total. I have the feeling everything is going to be alright for me and my kids! I'm looking forward to getting to chat to some of you all.
