Hi All - I've had chickens for 5 years now and am adding a 2nd coop this spring. I've had a variety of hens but have decided that Orpington's work best for my needs and weather conditions. I have 13 one year old Buf's in the original coop and have ordered 18 white's for the new, larger coop. They will arrive next month and I'm excited to see them. chicken "ranching" is addictive!
