Greetings everybody, been lurking for a while now and taking in all of your great information, pictures and advice. Decided to formally join this great bunch of people. I initially got 4 buff orpingtons and 1 barred rock chicks but on the way home kept looking in the box and seeing 1 little black chick it just felt so wrong........so had to go back into town and got another little barred rock. anyway our little girls are now 17 weeks old and are such a kick to watch. They come flap running across the yard as soon as they see us or the dog, cracks me up everytime.
