We're 100% Buff Orpington here. Have been since about 1990. The roos are fertile, get the job done, and grow big enough for a rotisserie bird. The hens lay very well, large brown eggs, and given a heat lamp and a light bulb they lay well into cold weather. The light buff color is easier on them in the summer as it absorbs less heat and keeps them cooler. Occasionally we have one that is fanatical broody. We just mark her nest and slip more eggs under her to hatch. They make fair mothers, but you need to watch the roos. Their size makes it easy to squash young chicks.

Jes' been hangin' around waiting for the rain to stop and everythin' to dry up again. Got corn as high as a duck's eye already and taters up near as much.

Yeah, I thought about getting Sussex since they are large, but I have the one Marans rooster and thought I'd just use him over my egg layers.

He ended up being the only survivor of a dozen shipped BCM hatching eggs I bought last year.

Next year I'd like to get some Light Sussex; but right now I'm overrun with chickens.

(I need to find the willpower to turn OFF my incubator!)
