    yes those island reds are also excellent layers. Orpingtons are good layers too but they don't beat the RIR. They have a sweet temperament though :). Not sure where you are located but I know of some RIR chicks for sale now in bargersville and I saw an ad for a place in Salem as well. Craigslist. Or of course you can still make a hatchery order. I like mcmurray.

    I wonder what the deal is with the other eggs? :( i just bought some two week old chicks from a lady in bargersville. She had over ordered from the hatchery and had a ton of sexed chicks available. She's on the Indy Craigslist ad but if you like I can give you the number.

    Welcome!! It is indeed hard to keep up with this thread. Good luck on your girls starting to lay. I also got in to chickens in April, but have since cheated and added older girls. They of course are laying and I know some of my younger girls are laying because my daily egg count is starting to creep up....just not sure who yet. Looking forward to hearing of your success. :)

    2" side up. 2x4's? That's a bit of overkill, huh. Now you can perch beside your chickens.[​IMG] On the other hand, anything worth doing is worth overdoing. [​IMG] If you have the tools and capability, you can resaw the 2x4's down to 2 2x2's and it will work fine.

    I'm having fun with you. I haven't checked recently, but I expect an 8' 2x4 is not much more than an 8' 2x2. If you resaw it, you will have cheap 2x2's.

    Rhode Island Red roosters are particularly aggressive. Mine needed to be kicked about weekly to keep it from attacking my ankles. Not good around children or soft hearted folks.

    The hens, on the other hand, are good egg layers and docile.
