    Our daughter recently joined the local 4-H group and is doing the poultry project. Basically this is a fancy way of saying that we will be raising chickens but using a coop that is at a small ranch near by. We have 4 pullets that are now about 7 weeks old. Two are Buff Orpingtons and the other two are Australorps. Currently they are being housed in our garage as we just got the keys to the coop area. We should be moving them in once we get the proper feeder/waterer and decide if we want to fix up the coop a little first (there is a mouse problem).

    ETA: We live in Northern California (USA) in the San Jose area.
