    Hi there,

    I am new to chickens and love them. We have 2 flcoks, they are all buff orpington hens. They are sweet and loveable. one group is 4 months old and one group is about 6 months old. The older girls laied their first eggs this week. I am sure i will be posting for lots of help as we are having trouble loosing the younger girls for no apparent reason. :(
