    Good morning, we have just recently purchased our hens - 6 red shavers, they are 1 year old. We are totally amazed at how sociable they are. They always seem like they are talking to you, and love having some treats! We are enjoying the fresh eggs, especially after I read about how old the eggs are from the stores! Wow I love this site so informative and enjoy seeing other posts. We are having our grandsons out this weekend and cant' wait to let them gather the eggs, they will love it.
    Looking forward to reading other newbies posts[​IMG]
