We bought a house last June with a BEAUTIFUL chicken coop in the backyard. This past weekend I finally got it all cleaned up and ready to welcome some new chickens. I will be a first time chicken Momma and am pretty clueless. A friend is giving me a couple of eggs (mix of Buff Orpingtons and Barred Rocks) along with her incubator to borrow. She promised to give me guidance and said it's pretty easy to care for chicks. I hope she is right! I have a 2.5 year old daughter and want to spend more time with her outdoors connecting with nature. I hope I am getting started with a good breed. Thanks for any tips/insight. I am happy to be a newbie in this group!
