We recently purchased 25 acres and moved from the city to the country. In August we purchased 10 babies from Tractor Supply, 4 have been killed, 2 ended up to be roosters, 2 started laying a little over a month ago and 2 are not doing anything. I purchased 10 older hens from a friend a week ago. So we have 16 birds and getting 2 eggs a day! I plan on purchasing more babies in the spring.
