This is my first time posting and first time to own chickens. I got 12 chickens from one farm and was told that all were about 5-6 months of age. I have 4 Australorpe, 4 BR, and 4 RIR. We've had them now for almost a week. We were told that some were laying but he wasn't sure which ones since he didn't have a "Chicken Cam." So far none are laying but all seem to be adjusting fine. 2 of the Australorpes stayed in the coop for a whole day but have now ventured out to where the other chickens are. They have plenty of roosting poles and nesting boxes in their coop (along with food and water outside the coop). There may be some already dominate hens as a few of the RIR's have bare "backsides" due to chickens pulling out their feathers. Just wanted to know what others thought of this and how long until they may feel comfortable enough to lay? Thanks!
