    Hi Everyone!
    I am so happy to be part of such a great group. I grew up on a farm in Virginia but have lived in the Philly 'Burbs for over 20 years with my husband and 2 sons. We own a very small piece of property (less than 1/3 of an acre) and never thought it was possible to raise chickens. After much research and making sure we would be in compliance with our borough ordinances, we have decided to finally take the leap. We are still in the planning stages but hope to have a coop with probably 3 Orpingtons by sometime next spring. Until then, we continue to soak up every bit of info possible [​IMG]

    Welcome. I'm an Orpington lover. I think it's a great breed to start with.
