Good afternoon. My name is Scott and we (my 2 boys and I) have just gotten started with 8 Buff Orpington hens and 1 "very busy" rooster. I really appreciate the opportunity to ask/share info with other friends of chickens. I will apologize ahead of time as I am sure I will being asking some really silly, beginer type questions.....I thank each of you ahead of time for being patient with me. Have a great day....Spring is here and I am excited!!!
