Hi, Fellow Hoosiers! Thanks to TooFast for making me aware of this thread. I'm a first-time-chicken-mom and though I researched the bejezus out of everything before I started, it's all new to me. We live in the city, and have a small coop area with totally fenced in chicken run. 8 pullets ranging from 12 weeks to 18 weeks, 7 of them planned and one surviving packing peanut. 3 Cream Legbars, a Dominique, a Golden Cuckoo Maran, a Delaware, Bantam Black Orpington (the packing peanut), and what's supposed to be a Gold Laced Wyandotte, but is not. Who knows what she is, but she's very big. Aretha, our oldest Crem Legbar, laid our first egg on Sunday and as of this morning (Wednesday) we had not yet got another from her. If she doesn't get busy soon, I'll be forced to have cereal for breakfast on Saturday, instead of eggs!
