New Pullets

In the past two days I've added 3 young hens to the laying flock. Not that the new ones are laying yet, but they should start this spring. One friend gave me 2, another friend gave me one. All 3 pullets are wild type.....just mix breed chickens that run feral around here. And though their eggs are small, the hens are very hardy, easy keepers, and make excellent moms. 

I keep chickens for their manure. So it doesn't matter that the eggs are on the small side. I look at the eggs as a bonus.
