Why do our Buff Orpingtons never survive?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Me and my sister live next to each other on the same farm. We both breed orpingtons and have our own flocks. 
Blues, blacks and splash orpingtons thrive here, and are free range. However every time we try bring in a buff orpington it dies after a few weeks/months. We've never had one live for more than 4 months: and we have no idea why. 
Its only the buffs that die, and every other hen seems healthy. We've gotten them at different ages, from different breeders and gotten both genders- but they never live. 
My dream is to have a flock of every colour of orpington but at this rate I don't think it'll happen. 
Any ideas why?

(Sorry if this isn't the right place for this thread- I'm new to all this. :) )

Lab work.

How else would you know why they died?

Where do you live?
