    Okay we got 28 chicks from McMurray in Nov. We have 22 left and now that they have stared laying about two weeks ago, Im begining to wonder if we don't have a few roos. Im pretty new to all of this so I am going to post some pictures and go from there.

    I see hens. You say they're six months? That seems pretty old to not be laying consistently.

    well they are free range most of the day, so I am thinking more easter egg hunts in order. They were born the week of Nov 5th. I am getting about 7 eggs a day and really think it should be more.
