I am new here to Back Yard Chickens, and new to raising chickens! We received 2 Buff Orpington chicks as an Easter gift to our 2 boys (4ys and 6yrs old)! We have since added 3 more for a total of 5 chicks (all Buff Orpingtons...the only breed the feed store still had in stock, and from what I read on BYC they seem to be a good breed to start with). When I was young (elementary years) we had a few chickens and ducks, however I didn't have any experience with anything other than helping feed them. We just moved to our property to start our small farm, and the chickens are a welcomed addition. Thanks in advance to all the experienced chicken handlers out there for the wisdom you've shared. I am sure I will have a lot of questions!
Thanks again, and I'm excited to be a part of BYC!
