Three days ago a friend gave me three 9-11 month old laying hens. 1 Buff rock, 1 Splash Cochin, and 1 Blue Andalusain(not sure if i spelled it right). They seem to be comfortable in there new coup, eating drinking and loving the strawberry tops they got this morning. No eggs yet, when should I expect them? Also, how long should I wait to let them out to "free range"? We always did this in the past, but with chickens that were raised here at the house. I live on ten acres with no close neighbors, and a couple of horses. Thanks so much for any help!
