    Good morning! We have a dozen Buff Orpingtons, (9 black and 3 yellow chicklets (we are calling them that, since they are much younger, got them a week ago)) and now 2 roosters! My husband had chickens when he was a child and since we now own a small hobby farm we wanted to have some chickens to go along with our horses. We also have a selection of cat's who are already chicken friendly from the previous owners. A coop is on its way and hopefully warmer weather!
