Hello all! My husband and I are finally getting some chickens. Down the road we'd like to get some Buff Orpingtons, but for now we are getting some chicks from Southern States chick days. We have a coop picked out...just need to order it as soon as we pick up the chicks. We'll be making a large run to move about the yard with some sort of fencing and PVC piping, with a tarp over the top for sun protection, so that they can free range safely. We will be having them in a bedroom until they are old enough to go out to the coop. I look forward to being able to bounce ideas off members as we move forward in our endeavor with owning chickens!
