Hi, I am new to this board and have spent the day exploring the forum and well most of the website. I have always wanted chickens and my dream is becoming reality. Right now I am just in the early planning stages. I am fortunate that my city allows for chickens and have access to a large back yard. I am exploring Coup designs and breed info. I am in love with the Orpington and their fluffy bottoms. I just want a small flock 4-6 hens. They are mainly for pets and the eggs would just be an added bonus.
