Hello everyone! I've really enjoyed going through the website and BYC forum as I prepared to get some chicks this spring! This is my third set of chickens, but second set of chicks. We live in town, in California and we finally got our 5 chicks today. We will be building a coop soon in our backyard. Looking forward to some lovely, fresh eggs. We got 1 each of RIR, Ameraucana, Silkie, Barred Rock, and Buff Orpington (those last two have been my dream chicken breeds to get!) My daughter Elizabeth, who's 4, is quite thrilled and wants to hold them every 5 seconds lol Anyways, I love this website, and there's an immense amount of chicken knowledge to glean from!
