    Hello everyone!
    I have no chicks yet but am in the "nesting" process :). Hubby and I are laying the groundwork and completing the research to provide the best possible home for the chicks. We have a big run area that's fenced in and the coop will be created by a local Amish family. Feed and water dishes have been given to me by a friend and we have decided on orpingtons. Now I need to decide when to buy the chicks and where I should buy them from. Any advice for a new chicken family is very appreciated!
