Hello. I am new here and also new to chickens. I currently have 8 - 3 week old Buff Orpingtons and 3 "teen-ager" chickens (2 hens - 1 big white rooster). I fell in love with them all immediately! They are in a large coop with a fenced yard for a while but once they get used to us - they will be roaming during the day. Have found so many wonderful tips and ideas here that I have started taking notes... LOL Have a great day!
