    I never thought I would one day be so interested in having my own chickens! We bought 2 one day old baby chicks. One is a Buff Orpington and the other is a Danish Brown Leghorn. They are 2 weeks old today and we still have them indoors with the heatlamp to keep them warm. I just ordered a chicken coop and should be getting it in the mail on Wednesday. Today I prepared the area wear we will put the coop. I find myself searching for all kinds of information that I can about chickens on the internet and am learning more and more everyday! I am glad to have found this forum to connect with other chicken owners!

    Welcome to BYC from California wine country in the Western Sierra Foothills.

    Your Buff Orp and LH are going to give you great eggs and so much enjoyment! The LH will most likely start to lay much earlier than your BO.

    So glad you joined us in this chicken keeping endeavor!
