    I have been lurking here for a while (and I think I might have posted once when I first joined a long time ago), but I finally have chickens as of tonight. I found a great deal on a coop, other equipment, and 7 hens in my local classifieds, and since we moved and have room, I snatched it up. I now have a couple of Buff Orpingtons, a Barred Rock, a Leghorn (I think) and 3 others that I haven't been able to place yet.

    I'm really excited and terrified at the same time (kind of like when I brought my first baby home from the hospital!)
