New Chicks in the Neighborhood!

I have been waiting for spring since we moved in! Not only for the nicer weather, and the chance to plant a garden. I have been waiting mainly for spring so we could buy some backyard chickens!! 
Since we moved out of Utah I have been dreaming of the day we could get some chickens to lay fresh eggs. Fresh eggs are just so much better. They taste better, and look prettier. It's fun to go out and see how many eggs the hens laid. Having chickens is just all around fun for me.

We decided to get some Buff Orpingtons for our little flock, they will lay large brown eggs and will be golden-yellowish-brownish hens, or in other terms a "buff" color. 
It has been fun to try out different breeds and see their different personalities, so I am intrigued as to how these little gals will do.

They are so cute when they are this tiny!!!

Fluffy little ladies!

My co-worker was kind enough to ask his neighbor if we could use his brooding pen for our little chicks. We will keep them in here until the coop is all set up and once it gets warmer outside.

Any one else getting some chickens for their backyard this year? I highly recommend it!!
