adding new chickens to flock

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.See More
