    Hi Everyone! Howlinggood here! I just put an order in for 8 Buff Orpington chicks for our old chicken coop in the backyard. I cleaned it out this past weekend. Still have to clean out the run a little, buy some supplies and hope they all make it to adult hens. I am so excited. We pick them up at Agway on April 3rd. Wish us luck at our new endeavor - "Schmidt Farms". We decided our little make believe farm needed a name [​IMG]
