I have an unusual situation. I am a missionary in Honduras and built a coop to have hens to provide eggs for the school our mission runs. Because of our immediate need I needed to buy chickens that were already laying instead of raising chickens. I bought 10 hens from a guy that lives close by. The girls are various breeds (I believe australorps, catalinas, and orphingtons.) I figured the move would be a bit of a shock and it take a bit of time for them to readjust and lay normally. The first 4 days I had them I got 2 eggs a day from the 10, and then today, the fifth day, I finally got 5. A few have escaped a couple times (I founded the issue and fixed it) and keep going back to their original home and stay glued to a rooster there until I get them. The original owner says they are very attached to that rooster and I should get him to make them happier. My question is if anyone has any experience kind of like this and if you have any opinions on if I should acquire the rooster. Thanks for your replay!
