    Hi all
    2 weeks ago we got out first ever chickens. 1 x black star and 1 x gold star who settled in fine. Have since added 1x Sussex to the mix and they are getting on well. Have to say they are hard work and I'm like a new parent worrying over everything they do

    They are all about 20 weeks and we are not getting many eggs yet. Egg production stopped with arrival of Sussex. Fingers crossed they start again soon

    Greeting and welcome aboard, amyandalan, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here. Introduction of new birds sometimes interrupts egg production as the birds get used to each other and re-establish the pecking order. Shouldn't be too long before you the eggs start back to normal. Good luck to you!!
