A couple of weeks ago, our local paper advertized that there were as many as 60 hens available at the local Humane Society! Many were being offered in several counties. We ended up having to go to Marin CO, cause our Sonoma Co were out of the chickens! We got 2 leghorns, who are the cutest of cute! My problem is that they don't know how to find a nest! I made a nest ladder, they have 3 nests, I have put a marble egg in the nest They just seem to lay anywhere, on the ground , or wherever.
