    Hello. My name is Nikki. I recently acquired chickens. I am 31, and living on the South Shore of Long Island. They are 3 egg laying hens. I received them from my Uncle who isn't healthy enough to continue caring for them. I am new to the chicken world. I joined for some advice and make some new "friends". [​IMG]

    Hi, Nikki, welcome to BYC. Your birds appear to be in very good shape. They may not lay for a while until they become acclimated to their new home. Click on the Learning Center at the top of the page, check out the forums and question away. Good luck with your new flock.

    My uncle said the same. I have had them for about 2 weeks. I should've have stated this.. They are acclimated, I moved their coop to my property. They didn't lay eggs for the first 2 days, but after that we have been getting 1-3 eggs a day. (Which according to my uncle is normal for them.
