    On Sat night I got 9 hens, 2 roosters. one hen is a splash, another hen is a cuckoo, the two roosters are black, the rest of the hens are either blue or black. I have them in with my peahen and two ducklings and they are all getting along, but when should I be expecting eggs? the lady I got them from said I should get some in about 3-4 days? i posted a pic of my chicks to just to show them off. But these are pictures of my new chickens. First time with chickens.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Sometimes it can take a few weeks to get settled in before they will feel comfortable enough to lay. Good luck! They're beautiful.
