We bought a new home late May, and the house conveyed with many things.. furniture, appliances, and three hens. Lol I don't know the breed, or much about them. They sometimes lay eggs, but not as frequently for us as the old owner said they did for her. The guy at TSC said that the stress of change could be affecting them. I'd love to get them back to laying regularly. They roam the neighborhood during the day, and get locked up for safety at night. My kids love them, but they aren't very friendly.
