    Thanks for the welcome, I will probably be asking some rather silly ???'s for a while, so please have patience.
    First ? my barred rock hens have all quit laying, any reason?

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. It's probably due to the lack of sunlight. I would suggest you post your questions in the appropriate sections. You should get more responses than in the new member section. Not everyone looks at the new member section. [​IMG]
