I have 2 light sussex, 1 buff orpington, 3 redstars all around 22 wks old. The only one laying now is the buff orpington. When should I expect to see the others start? The redstars have lost and started re-growing tail feathers, they look very full now. My kids have enjoed them so much, they are very interesting to watch and quite entertaining. Any advice is appreciated

I cant wait to see more eggs. I was hysterical getting the first egg from our buff (buttercup is her name) They all act like they want to squat and have been for a couple of weeks. I have been giving them Layena Layer Crumble, hope this is the right thing

My kids named them all... too funny! We have Alyssa, Petunia, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Millie, Buttercup

I never knew chickens could be this much fun.
