    Yes, I'm the proud new momma of six Buff Orpingtons. I've never had chickens before and never fancied myself much the chicken kind of gal, but I have to admit...these little ladies are pretty awesome. I'm looking forward to raising them and sharing my experiences. Being a first-timer, any helpful suggestions would be welcome.:cd
