Hello. I am new to the chicken thread and to raising chickens. I am a proud mama of a yearling peacock, but I am also starting to raise chickens. We live in Chile, in the countryside. All of our neighbors have chickens and most also have sheep, goats, pigs and cows. Less than two months ago one of our neighbors gifted us two hens and a rooster. They were very young still, about two to three months old. I immediately made a nice home for them with roosts of various heights and also nesting boxes. They also have quite a bit of space to run around in outside of the coop. Today I decided to upgrade their nesting boxes after reading a thread here on BackYard Chickens. I was surprised to find that one of the boxes already had three eggs in it. I didn´t realize that a) my hens were even using the boxes and b) that they are old enough to lay eggs. The rooster started crowing a week ago. Because of where we live and the casualty of owning chickens, no one actually knows (or cares) what breed these guys are. Chickens are chickens in Chile. I was told by some of my North American and Canadian friends that these may be Plymouth Rock chickens. What do you guys think? Thank you.
