    Thank yall. Man's there's a lot of good info on this site. Duke I'm not in a local here. Been a volunteer going on 18 years. I'm really really green on the chickens so bare with me. We got 4 silver laced cochin bantams and 4 buff orpingtons. Not sure on the sex yet but hopefully we got some hens.
