    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.

    Sorry for the losses, do you know what happened to them? Maybe we can offer some tips to keep that from happening.

    Best of luck to you, it's nice to have you here!

    Aw! Give your older girls time to settle in. Hopefully they'll start laying for you in the spring.
