Chickens R Us
This is an overview of my 4H project I am doing this year on raising chickens.  I ordered Barred Rocks and Buff Orpingtons from McMurray hatchery.

My chickens are now about 10-12 weeks.
There are 3 Orpingtons and 9 Barred Rocks.They are all hens. They love jumping and flying about.When they were chicks, we had them in a pen in our garage. But they soon got to big for the pen so we made a chicken coop for them.The chicken coop is 8 feet by 8 feet.We have a 5 gal. waterer and a 13 lb. feeder.We made the chicken coop out of plywood,2 by 4s,and chicken wire.
These are Buff Orpington chicks.
