    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] You are welcome to bombard us with questions. We were all new chicken owners once. Our turn first: What breed(s) have you got and how old are they?

    Thanks for the welcome :)
    I have 2 girls. One Cochin bantam (friendliest lil chook ever) and the other a standard Cochin cross. They just got introduced to each other today... I hope they get along ok. The bantam is Penny and the other Amy.

    I forgot ages... I have no idea how old the bantam is (should I ask her?) The other (just got her today) umm... Been laying for a couple of months. How old would that make her?
    They are the cutest chooks ever

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    Most pullets start laying when they are around 20 weeks

    Cool, I don't even know what a pullet is... My phone didn't even recognise the word.
