    Hi everyone, My wife and I decided to become chicken family. We are from a small town in central Minnesota. We are planning on starting with 6 chicks that we will be picking up next week. We have been tossing the idea around for almost two years and finally decided to pull the trigger. We are super excited and love having a resource like this available to us!

    We are getting 3 buff orpingtons and 3 black australorps. We thought about getting 2 each of 3 different breeds but couldn't agree on a 3rd breed.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined us.

    You'll be getting two nice breeds that have reputations for being gentle and very good egg layers! Good luck with your future chicks.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Oh, you will love the docileness and friendliness of both of these breeds! They are very affectionate birds and will take to your lap early on. They are also great layers as well!

    If you have any questions after you get your new chicks, feel free to ask us. Welcome to our flock!
