    We finally have our coop done and our chickens home. We started our coop in September and bought our first chickens,our chickens were atthe neighbours in her spare coop. Though a lot of work we finally have our flock at home. We have a pair of buff Orpingtons Fred and Ethel we also bought 7 easter egger chicks. Three of my chicks are roosters and will have to go the only thing that worries me is Ethel was a faithful layer until the end of November and she quit laying. I am hoping come spring she will start laying again. This is a new adventure so stay tuned I am sure I will have lots of questions. :)

    Welcome to BYC - Ethel will lay once the day length increases.
