    Today I decided to embark on a new adventure. I took 8 of my 10 roosters to a local stock sale and they were auctioned off. I got $41.00. Pretty good I guess. Now my 2 remaining roosters can have the 13 hens all to themselves. The coop feels bigger and the food will last longer. Good move if I do say so myself!!! Now if they will only start laying eggs. Give me some hints to help that process along. They are almost 5 months old. Thanks for the help.

    What breeds do you have? Seeing that they are at 20 weeks,eggs should be coming soon I would think.

    I'm not sure of the breed. I need to take some pics and post them so you guys can help me out. 2 hens are def RIR and 1 of them is a RIR mix. I have 4 that are black and white, 3 that are white with cream on the wings & back, and 3 that look like a combo of the black & white and the cream & whites.
