Hello everyone. I am brand new to chickens or as I need to call them "Backyard Hens". This gives me the wriggle room to have them in my area. I did a lot of research, reading and thinking prior to jumping into this endeavour. 2 1/2 weeks ago, I bought 2 RI Reds and 2 Buff Orpingtons. They live in the garage but get outside to their run and coop structure 3-4 times per week. I will post some pictures later.
