    Hi Everyone, I keep getting emails from BYC saying I need to post something so I figured I'd start with introducing myself. My husband and I recently picked up 4 buff orpingtons from his cousin. According to her we should be getting our first eggs any day now. I'm trying to keep my obsession in check but I kept envisioning a big coop and run in my back yard rather than the little chicken tractor we have now.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new flock and I hope those eggs start coming soon!

    I started with a small coop and was so glad when we built a much larger nicer coop. The birds enjoyed that they could go hang out in the coop on bad weather days, I could walk in AND stand up in it, LOL, and loved the room inside for storage and such. Much easier on the birds and me!

    You might want to check out our coops pages and get some ideas on building a new coop...https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops

    Enjoy this new adventure and I hope you see eggs soon!! :)

    I have a small coop and although it's cute and my girls are happy, I'd love to have a new, huge one!

    Welcome. Glad you decided to join our flock. Buff orpingtons are a wonderful breed; friendly & gentle & good layers of large, brown eggs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting those eggs soon.
