(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? This will be my first time raising chicks (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Waiting on 5 chicks - they will arrive at a local store early April (3) What breeds do you have? We are getting: Speckled Sussex Buff Orpington We have a 2 yr old daughter and these were recommended as friendly (and cold hearty for WI!) (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Recommended by feed store employee Hello from SE WI! I have been reading this forum for about a month and am impressed by the knowledgeable and friendly people here. My husband is building a Woods coop and we've been having a great time reading chicken books with our daughter. Can't wait until our chicks are here!
