The short story:
Our teenagers have started to lay! They just turned 6 months.
The long story:
We are new to this chicken stuff. We bought a house that was over run with chickens (50+) - we ended up capturing most of them and rehomed them. We kept a few. Well, one girl laid and hatched out 3 - 2 roos and 1 hen. Kept the hen. So we had 3 roos and 2 hens. I got the silkie bug and picked up a pair of black at the feed store. The 3 roos did not take well to seeing this intruder, so the other 3 roos went to a new home! I have to say I LOVE MY SILKIE ROO!! New hen laid and hatched out a nice little herd. We picked out 2 to keep and rehomed the rest of the chicks. And of course our 2 ended up as roos. So our little herd consist of 1 Adult silkie roo, 2 adult hens, and 2 juvie roos. They really are a peaceful little group. Dear white hen sneaks off and lays another set, this time she appears with 6 chicks. ( We are now getting smart and decide to wait for them to get a little older before picking out who we want to keep) We have 4 hens and 2 roos!!
Present day: Our herd is the Main silkie roo - one mix roo (Non aggressive and I just like this guy!) 6 hens (2 older and 4 that are the 6 month olds) Well, yesterday we found the nest of the Teenagers!
