hey! just got three beautiful hens and are hoping to get two more in the coming days....cant get more than five though! they are still young ones and make peeping sounds even though they ARE a few months old. they DO bwuk as well but they sound so cute. cant wait for my first eggs. we're got a barred rock, a white one with grey speckles round the neck (what one is this?) and a black aracauna cross something with brown speckles sort of feathers. how old when they first start laying? and how big are the eggs for those breeds i mentioned. oh and whats a good breed for the other 2, i was thinking wyandottes for a different colour but i really like orpingtons....one of each??? thanks!!
