    Just wanted to say Hi, and intro ourselves. My wife and I live in Capon Bridge, WV in Hampshire County on 21 acres and have decided to try our hand at some chickens when we get back from vacation around the end of June.

    I have been reading the fourm for about 3-4 weeks and stopped in at ChickenStock in Martinsburg WV this past weekend and enjoyed talking and learning from everyone.

    I think we are going to try some Buff Orph but having little trouble finding a place that will sell in lower numbers. Feel free to contact us with suggestions or ideas we are open to learning.

    I hope to start building something simaler to this style very soon:
