I was planning on ordering some chicks from a hatchery in a few months and raising them, but yesterday I saw an ad on craigslist about some chickens for sale...I called the number and found out a lady here is getting rid of the last of her mixed breed Easter Eggers at $3 apiece since she's sick of just watching the coyotes dig under her fences and eat them. I'm going to go pick up the last few left tomorrow, four hens and a rooster! She says some of them are half banty, so they are small, but they lay good, and the eggs are blue and green, and that's what counts for me! I've never bought adult hens already laying, just chicks. Will moving the hens to a new home possibly make them stop laying for a while, or should they just keep going like normal?
