Hi! I've lurked forever and thought I should probably post as my chicks will be here in 3 weeks!
This is my flock, provided everyone arrives in good health and there are no surprise roosters.
1 Buff Orpington
2 Bantam Black Frizzle Cochin (I could NOT resist, they are too cute!)
I tried to pick breeds that should get along, be okay with more confinement than free ranging, be good producers of eggs, have good dispositions, and be able to withstand a wide variety of temperatures. Like, 0-100 degrees.
Thoughts? The brooder is set up and holy smokes we need to start on the coop, like NOW!
I'm super excited, I've wanted chickens since I was a little girl and my grandmother jokingly said we could keep some in her garage. Here we are 30 something years later....
In any event, I just wanted to say hi! I'm sure I'll have a million questions along the way-this is such a fantastic website/forum!
