I am a new proud chicken owner, having just started this year with 13 birds here in West Centeral Wisconsin. I have a mixed breed flock with one Roo for sure and my two silkies I am pretty sure are roos as well, but as my main guy is dominant, it is hard to tell. Most of the flock hatched early May and I am STILL waiting for my first egg! Now that the days are already getting shorter way up here, I am afraid I might have to wait for steady laying until spring. Any experience for this newbie? Thanks!
