Hello everyone. Just thought I would join you're group of great information and good people. So a little about me I'm located in upstate New York. I had a friend a few years ago that started his own flock of chickens. He gave me a couple dozen eggs....and then I was hooked. I laughed at him at first and said a egg is a egg. But after getting hooked on his free range ones it was difficult to go back to store bought. So last week I ended up taking 7 hen chickens from a coworker that needed to re-home them. So I built a coop/nesting box and large fenced in pen (much larger then they where use to). So far so good they seem vary happy, and just let them out for free range yesterday. Thought they are sticking close to the coop all is well (should be a good thing). From what he told me one was born on Easter Sunday and the others a week before. So my question is when do they normally start producing eggs? I know they are still young, I also am not really familiar with breeds of them. He told me numerous times and I can never remember lol.
