    Hello! We just ordered our chickies, due 30 November. We have one Blue Ameraucana, one Cochin, one Blue Splash Maran, one Buff Orpington, two Easter Eggers on the way.

    I am very nervous about preditors in our area, feeding them wrong, coop building, and messing this up. But we are reading tons, learning and listening to all things chicken. This should be fun! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

Worried about predators, check out the predator threads and how to secure your coop and run. Tons of questions - the Learning Center was made for you. Welcome to Backyard chickens, hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

    You'll have a colorful egg basket once those girls start laying. In the meantime, enjoy them while they are little because they don't stay little long. Take lots of pictures (and share them with us of course)! They'll be here before you know it.

    Thanks for joining us!
