So, Travis got me my first Back yard Chickens. We have had them about 3 weeks. 3 hens given to us by his uncle a rooster given to us by his niece, and 4 what I call industrial chickens(they came from the chicken house down the road). I have never had chickens before, but I love them. The three black hens are laying, they were laying before I got them. Now I think the one hen is setting.
