Hello all, thanks for having me. I am hoping to learn a lot from you all! Currently I have 2 RIR Roos and 3 Leghorn hens. I have had them now for about 6 months and to date... no eggs. I keep them in a 10x10 kennel with a coop and a shade tarp. I live out in the country and have dogs so I worry about letting them roam free. Jin and Sawyer are my Roos. Jin is starting to be a problem, he is mean and tries to peck my feet. I am worried that my poor hens are getting ganged up on! Jin has got to go but I do not have the heart to eat him so I am trying to re-home him. Sawyer is tall and gorgeous, but my hens dont seem to be maturing as I expected. I feed them NatureWise layer feed and all of our kitchen scraps. We juice so I cant imagine they aren't happy with the plethora of cucumber, kale, beets, lettuce, strawberries and blueberries they get on a regular basis. I clean out their coop once a week and make sure they always have fresh water. Jin is still a brat though! I had hoped that my chickens would be more affectionate towards me... but they are scared of me! It kind of sucks! Anyways, when can I expect eggs and how do I make my chickens love me???!!!
