    Hi everyone , I'm brand new in here :) I'm from Northern Ireland and have got 4 hens , I got them when they were very young only 8 weeks and they are now at point of lay . The girls seem moody , is this normal when they are going to lay any day soon ? Thanks

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Hens sometimes undergo a bit of a personailty change when they come into lay. I can't see much on the pic you posted, but those bright red combs are a sign of good things coming.

    Thanks for your reply . Yes my biggest girl Annie is very moody today . I have a hen that I've no idea what breed it is also , she's a very placid hen and loves attention . Maybe someone could help me figure out what type o breed she is . This forum is fantastic I'm learning so much from just one morning on tips etc [​IMG]

    She's beautiful! Your best bet would be to post some pics of her in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section and see what the breeds experts say. I agree, I learned lots since I joined this forum and I'm still learning new things all the time.

    I put the link in for you above (in blue), click on that and it will take you directly to the section. Then start a new thread like you did here.
