    I am so new to chickens I have not even received my babies yet. Although I did order them. I have 4 Buff Orpington chicks to pick up on February 19th. Never had chickens before but have read everything I can get my hands on so far. This site has been terrific for information. I found you from a google search for chicken coop and backyard chickens. Checked it out and then lurked for quite awhile. I finally worked up the nerve to get registered so that I could have access to so much information/wisdom/help. Can you tell I am nervous about getting the babies? [​IMG] I have taken care of 1 husband, 2 sons-1 leaves for basic training just before the chicks come, 1 labrador, 1 cocker, 2 koi & 1 cat (who is KING). Hopefully I am up to caring for my little ones when they get here.
