I got my first chickens today - 4 little babies of all different types because we couldn't decide on a type. I know nothing about chickens that I haven't learned in the last few weeks, so this should be a bit of an adventure. We got a Black Australorp, an Ameraucana, one that was just labeled 'assorted Bantams' that's WAY smaller than the others, and one that was just labeled Buff - looking at pics online I think she's an Orpington. That one is pretty much a ball of yellow fluff like you would typically see in an Easter commercial. We did all kinds of research on what kinds would work well and then ended up going with what the people there suggested. Wish me luck, I'm going to need it and so are the little ones!
