Chicken Breed Focus - Orpington - Page 4

post #31 of 35

Hey everyone! I have a hen named Belle and I have a feeling she is mixed with a Orpington

Here is a picture of her

i got 1 buff chick. i love her because when ever i reach my hand near her and the other chicks they all try to get away, while she walks right up to me and inspects my hand doing what ever she can do, hopping on it, going under it, and pecking it. i just can't help but say AAAWWW!!!!

My favorite chicken EVER is a Buff Orpington! Always sweet- mine always liked to be picked up and carried around. My rooster was a little shy when he was learning to crow; he practiced until he was good at it (at first he sounded terrible:P) Once he got the hang of it, he was really proud of his newly found ability! He really didn't crow much, but I thought it was nice. I got him at a 4H show. From the moment I saw him, we were best friends. My dogs never really messed with him; however, he did end up getting dog stampeded and died. He was a fabulous pet, who was a friend to all my other pets including, 4 dogs and multiple rabbits.

Beautiful chickens. Thank you all not only for sharing your babies, but also the information. I'm planning on getting 4 Orpingtons and I'm trying to learn all about them.
