Backyard Chickens

Black Australorp

I cannot say this is a favorite of mine… Yet, let’s hope this fall or next year sometime when they are giving me eggs I’ll be able to say it’s a favorite but right now I am a little nervous if you want to know the truth as to what to think. This post is actually one where I am asking for HELP, tomorrow we are getting 15 baby chicks, a mixture of Buff Orpington’s and Black Australorp’s. I have been to 2 backyard chicken classes and we have a book (and thank goodness we are venturing in on this with some friends) but I would love any and all comments, suggestions, advice, tips, tricks to raising chickens. I would LOVE for you chicken experts out there to let me know all YOUR favorites about raising chicks and chickens.buff orphington
