I have so many hens and they are excellent layers. The problem is Im a sucker for a broody hen so I have more chickens than really fit comfortably on my property. If you are interested in adding to your flock or starting a new one, and live in the SF bay area, I can help you out. I live in the Richmond/San Pablo/El Sobrante area. My hens are banties and all are around one year old. They continued to lay all through the winter when I was reading folks lament about their lack of eggs from their hens. If you are interested please give me a private message and I will get back to you as soon as I get the message. Please, good homes only as my girls have all been raised in a loving environment. Im not offering them up for the stew pot! The picture is a representative of how they look. Their dad looks a lot like an Old English Game bird. He is such a pretty guy. Here he is with them as babies.
