Excited Newbie

My wife grew up on a farm and always loved chickens. We are a family of 5 and have the opportunity to start out own chickens . The kids are excited as we are to take this adventure together. We have one of those small starter chicken coops I bought off Facebook marketplace recently and a woman from church has some fresh hatched Buff Orpingtons to give us. I have to predator proof everything yet and for a start were gonna have the Coop inside our garden for added protection. Thanks for adding us and we look forward to getting our Chicken Game on with y'all
