Hi there, I'm Christina. My husband, 9 year old son and I just got our 4 Buff Orpington chicks yesterday. We decided to get chickens for the eggs and for the companionship of some cool creatures. Our neighbor has 5 chickens who get to run free all over the neighborhood. They visit our yard often and we fell in love! We had been talking about getting chickens for a few months but hadn't really made any preparations so when we made our decision I searched for info online... Here we are! We have our chicks in a big cardboard box with all the fixins and they seem to be acting normal based on everything I read on this site. Our coop and enclosure aren't built yet but we will be starting it today!
