    So my wife wanted chickens to provide fresh eggs so today we finally took the leap. We started out with 6 chicks (2 of three different kinds) but the wife did not remember what kind they were. She thinks there are 2 Buff Orpingtons and 2 mayanS and 2 leghorns but she was not sure. [​IMG]

    Hiya! :) I'm also new to BYC, but on the opposite coast. We don't even have our chickens yet - just thought I'd say hi!

    The pics you posted are so cute, and cuteness is one of the driving motivators for my wife wanting to raise chickens in the first place; to have the chicks, watch them follow around their mom, hatch and raise chicks, watch them follow arou ... ad infinitum. :)
