    Congradulations bug. I was so excited when I got my first hens. They are still to young to lay but it will come in due time. Looks like yours will be ready to start laying before mine do if they havent started already. I expect my first egg in March sometime.

    Quote:Yes. According to the guy i am getting them from they are laying well now. He is just trying to downsize his flock for the winter. I wanted to get 2 birds from the local hatchery here but they are not hatching any more till the spring.
