Congratulations!! oooh I wish I had some Buff Orpingtons!!♡♡♡♡ They didn't have any females for my hatch date which is April 11th. I pre-Ordered in January. This year's chicks I ordered are 7 Female Barred Rock chicks, 1 free production layer Suprise breed, and 1 Female Golden Cuckoo Maran. That's a total of 9. I have Silkie females at home. They are about 3 to 3 1/2 years old. Such sweet girls! Please post pictures of your cutie pies when they get here! can't wait to see them!
Hello just to give you a quick update. I finally got the chicks I wanted. I originally bought 8 English Buff Orpingtons which were from Green Fire lines and Marc Scare lines. I was very please with the seller who shipped the birds. They were very healthy and he was nice enough to ship an extra one, so I got nine in total which is very cool. They were shipped when they were a week old. They are doing so well and are continuing to thrive. I love them so much. I have two males, and the rest are females. I can't say enough about how the chicks were properly shipped. I will take a photo of them soon and post it.
That is so awesome I half a mix cochin and silkie hen which I have two in my flock. They look very identical. I have some pure cochin bantams and the rest are mixed with cochin bantams and Amercuana bantams (hoped i got close to spelling the right lol). Barred rocks are awesome. Great coloring and fabulous layers. Good luck with your birds! Thanks for giving me the site. I also got five American Buff Orpingtons from the nearest feed store they were ordered from Privett hatchery. They are all pullets because that's how I bought them. I am so eager to breed them with the English Buff and see what I get.
