Hi folks! Been a fan of BYC for a while now and figured it was time to join. We decided to get a few chickens last year and researched it here first. We didn't know anything about chickens and weren't even sure if we could keep them properly in our small yard, (Salem, Ma isn't exactly a country setting) Once we decided on the birds and the amount, 4 Buff Orpingtons, we used the site to find the answers to all of the problems new chicken owners have and it didn't let us down. So a belated thank you for all of the help everyone on this site has been to us!
