    First off I would like to thank everyone on this site, as it has helped us chicken newbies tremendously these past 6 months! Our city just made backyard chickens legal in June and we went out right away and got the maximum amount allowed for our size lot (3 hens). "Phyllis" is 6 month old and is the only one of our three babies that isn't laying yet. We are hoping it's just "her" taking her time. Does "she" look like a "he" to any of you? We would appreciate your honest opinions! Thanks!
