    Hello all! I just joined and have already received some wonderful help regarding my new hens. Thank you so much! My hubby and kids are playing along with my desire to raise hens and so far so good. I am in Kansas City and have 10 Production Reds that are 15 months old and apparently going through a molt. Can't wait until they are laying again! I brought them home just in time for the molt so I have not gotten an egg yet...lol I love my girls and they are so friendly and comical! Bear with me in the coming months as I know I will ask plenty of questions that might make you think I'm an idiot...hehe I just want the happiest and healthiest hens I can. [​IMG]

    Glad you are with us [​IMG] Molts can be frustrating when you are waiting and waiting for those eggs. Hope it passes quickly.
