    Hi! I'm a new member from central illinois! Just getting ready to get started in having chickens. Have been researching coops and runs now on to food & water! Have also been looking at all the pictures of the chickens and the multicolored eggs!
    My husbands friend is getting rid of his chickens so we are planning to take them and start with chickens. He doesn't know what kind they are (all are hens tho) so after we get things going i will take pics and hopefully someone can help id the kinds they are or might be! They are i believe a year or year and half old.

    Fore!
    Good morning and welcome to BYC!

    When you get your chickens, they'll probably be a bit stressed from moving to a new home so if you don't get eggs right away don't be too surprised. Chickens take a while to get used to changes. Just be patient with them and they'll get comfortable enough to lay again.

    Have fun with your new flock!
