Hello! After several years of wanting to get some chickens (we thought 4 would be ideal), my husband and I were finally able to take the plunge and came home with 21 baby pullets from TSC yesterday. A week from today we will be heading out to a local small farm to pick up six Lavender Orpingtons (straight run). Our current babies are 6 days old right now. We have 5 Light Brahmas, 5 Buff Orpingtons, 5 Australorps, and 6 Ameracaunas. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. We moved last September into this house with 10 acres and a pole barn. We have a few other pets.... dogs, a cat... but no other farm animals. I'm excited to start a small garden this year for the first time also. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself.
