    Hello, everyone!

    I'm a new chicken owner, never before owned anything more than a dog or a cat so... needless to say, I'm both excited and really, really nervous.

    I didn't start with day old chicks... My husband thought it would be better for me to have older, hardier chicks so we got them at almost 2 weeks old.

    They are Buff Orphington's (hope I spelled that right!).

    In the future, I am really hoping to own a few Silkies after all the wonderful things I've heard about them! [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm glad to be part of this forum and I hope to learn a lot here.

    Have a great day, fellow chicken fans! [​IMG]
