I'm new to everything chickens, but have done a ton of research. My boyfriend and I will be moving soon into an area that will finally allow me to keep chickens. I plan on keeping Orpingtons, Marans, EEs, Golden buff, Welsummer, and Faverolle. I'd love to keep Ameraucana or Auraucana, but they're pretty expensive from hatcheries. I'll be waiting to get the chicks until I'm completely prepared for them.
