Hello everyone! I've actually been lurking on this site for a while, and it got me totally in love with chickens... There are so many people on this site with great stories and good advice! I ended up getting a buff orpington and a white silkie from the feed store. They're the first ones I've ever had and they are such adorable little cluckers. I'm away at college and I won't get to see them grow up, but I'm thinking about them every day and hoping they grow up to be hens.
