Looking forward to learning all I can, and reading everyone's success stories about raising backyard chickens. I just ordered 18 Buff Orpington pullets, and 2 roos to raise. All organic I am hoping. I have had chickens in the past but due to traveling with my husband for work I had to rehome them. This time I am raising all of the same breed and think that I have chosen the best for New Hampshire's climate, and egg production, along with temperament.
