Hello Everyone! I am somewhat a newbie to the chicken world. I have been around chickens and cared for them as adults when family goes on vacation, but this is my first time actually getting my own babies. Hopefully tomorrow I can pick them at our local farm! I am looking at getting Orpington's and Wyandottes as I have two younger children of my own and really want to start with some nicer chickens. I'm excited to read the articles and learn from everyone's experiences but if you have any specifics for me, please educate me :) I'm a little nervous as these babies will only be two or three days old, but yet I'm SO Excited!! I can't Wait!

Glad you're here !

A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)
