Thanks for the warm welcome! The latest bunch that we had bought included several hens that are about a year old and are laying. We are averaging 8 eggs per day now. I already forsee one problem with some of the baby rooster's. One bunch we bought as aracauna pullets ended up being at least half roosters. Couple of them are pretty friendly and follow us around etc. We kinda hate to get rid of them, but it's something we'll have to do I'm sure.
