Hi, I want to add one or preferably two hens to my small flock of 3. They are a year old and each lay 5 eggs a week (LOVE it). I so enjoy them and have heard it's difficult to increase the flock. Please advise me - I need some comments, tidbits of information, any knowledge to put forth, helpful advice. Anything you can tell me, I'll appeciate! Happy chicken days to you all.
Just be ready for some squabbling! I would add two rather than one and if possible I would add some "obstacles" to the coop, where they can hide, if need be.....
Make sure the new ones are big enough to defend themselves, or fast enough to run and hide.....
OH what a GREAT idea! I love it!
Do you know anyone I could "borrow" a rooster from? Does anyone actually do this? It sounds perfect!
Calling all Friends of Roosters : Is anyone willing to stud out their Rooster for a few weeks?
