    I just got these girls 2 weeks ago, the larger one (on the left) has been producing an egg a day and the one on the right has just started laying maybe an egg every 3 days. I have never tried to keep chickens before, so I'm happy I found this page! I'm sure I'll be bugging y'all with questions.

    I am heading out now, to take pictures of the chicken tractor I built for them and will post them in whatever thread would be appropriate.

    Thanx! A friend at work that got me started in the whole chicken thing thinks they are a mixed breed with some buff orpington in them.
