We have 16 little week old chicks and decided we would like to have eggs sooner than they will be ready for. so we bought 4 hens that are between 7-9 months old. we got 1 NHR, 2 EEs, and 1 SL. and we have already gotten an egg!! I told a friend of mine not to bother buying egg dye for easter lol, because they are custom colored by my new girls!! NHR (after further investigation of this chicken, we realized she is not a BR but a NHR instead, which is fine with us, because she is beautiful) SL EE 1 (suspected egg layer) EE2 We plan to play with them and spend lots of time with them so they get more used to us. we are so excited about our new venture!!
