Hello! I am a newbie to backyard chickens and this forum. I have 4 hens: Orpington (Friday), Buff Orpington (Blondie), Heritage Rhode Island (Ruby), Barred/Plymouth Rock (Marty). I also have 2 GSD's. I live in central Florida. The chickens are around 8 months maybe a little older. They are gorgeous birds. Only one is currently laying 1 egg every other day.
