I am very excited to get started with my chickens, I have a 2 year old son and we are wanting backyard pet chickens.
We have a large fenced in back yard and a larg ever growing garden.
I have two large rabbit hutches (used to house a huge rabbit) that we are modifying to a coop. We plan to let them roam the yard during the day and closed up at night.
After lots of reasearch we have our hearts set on orpingtons, we are thinking two hens maybe 3. We live in town and have allready contacted animal control for all of the laws!
I plan to have a bail of straw, waters and feed ready before we get chicks..preferably feathered.
Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
