    Hi all, I'm. New to the chicken thing... well, new to owning my own chickens, that is. Does anyone know where I can acquire some buff orpingtons in the ottawa region come spring 2016? Thanks!

    Once you have 20 posts you can use the buy-sell-trade forum (that includes a free re-homing section). It doesn't take long to get 20 or more posts, just jump in on conversations that interest you, or join in on the thread Michael O'Shay gave you a link to.

    Good luck finding the birds you want and thanks for joining us!

    Thanks everyone! Really appreciate the warm welcome and kind words.

    I'll definitely be posting a ton with questions seeing as I really want to do this chicken thing right.

    Anyone have any good tips they think is worth sharing for caring for chickens?

    I'm interested in the "organic" approach. Not looking to start a debate, just some friendly personal experiences would help.
