Hello, we have acquired four Buff Orpington chicks courtesy of Principal Sarah at Sunnyside School. It's our first time keeping chickens, though I did once work on a large-scale chicken farm in Israel, collecting eggs twice a day from 10,000 chickens. We think these chicks are about 6 weeks old. They are still spending weekdays in the first grade classroom and weekends at our house, until they are ready for the outdoor coop. My main question right now is about getting the neighbors' permission and figuring out how close to our backyard fence we can set up the coop. I'm sure I'll find all that info in your archives!
