This is my first foray into raising egg layers. I've started with 2 Wyandottes and two Australorps. The chicks have been in the house for a month and last weekend I moved them to a larger crate in the garage. This spring weather has been miserable so planning is tough. I'm pretty excited about this venture. As a new retiree I am really enjoying watching these girls grow up. I've already had to manage the pasty butt and some pecking issues. Hopefully I have those problems worked out. I'll know I'll need more guidance along the way so I'm glad to have joined up!
