HI! I recently got 2 Rhode Island Reds from a pet store local to me. I feel they may have sold me older hens because neither of the hens have laid since I've got them. I've had them for 2 weeks now. I know it takes some time but I've read just a few days. From the start one of the hens I had got wasn't as active as the other....and just yesterday when I went out to let them roam my yard, I found her dead. This was extremely disheartening seeing as they were my first two chickens and I have no idea why this had happened. The other hen I have was extremely more curious in foraging and ate so much more compared to the hen that died. I don't know if they were just older and have past their days of laying or what. But if my other hen dies as well it will definitely be sad. The first picture is of my hen that is still alive. The second photo is of my other hen that died (this is her "sunbathing" or so I read when I looked it up as I thought this behavior was strange) but she was alive in that photo! Maybe that isn't a normal behavior and something I should have been more concerned with? Now I am wanting to get 2 pullets...since I've done some more research but idk if my hen will respond to them well. Although I have looked up how to introduce them! Please let me know what you all think! Thank you!
