Brand new chicken owner
Hello - I have never had chickens and would appreciate some advice. I have one cock and four hens who came to live with us a week ago. They seem to have settled and have made a couple of spots in the garden theirs. They come to the door about 6 pm looking for their food and I use their feed to get them to jump up into the coop so we can put them to bed for the night. So far so good! When can we expect them to start laying, will we have to hunt around the garden for the eggs? Is there anyone on this blog who can identify their breeds for me?
