I bought these chickens for egg laying at a poultry auction here in NY and they never told me anything about the chickens. I'd like to know what kind of chickens they are and how old they are. They lay light brown eggs. They are calm, quiet, and friendly. So far we've found 2 eggs in 3 days. I was expecting 1 a day from each chicken. Hopefully they're just not laying as much because they're not used to their new home yet.
