    For Xmas my husband completely surprised me with 4 Buff Orpingtons! This is something I have been wanting for a long time, but was shocked that he actually did it. Soooo, the chicks are living at my mother in laws while we build the coop! My husband used to be a general contractor, so this is going to be quite the coop. Any insight will be greatly appreciated, I am very wet behind the ears. ;)

    Welcome to BYC. Enjoy your entry into the wonderful world of poultry raising/keeping. Build that coop BIG. 4 will never be enough.

    Big is an understatment. Definately agree with the above. Build it big. But you can't stop at just four, we started with planning on three, and have got more every week since, they are addictive. Welcome :)
