Buff Orpington Rooster

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I bought two chicks in the beginning of march. One died but the other is alive. She is a Buff Orpington hen. I would like to get a rooster about the same age for her. Does anyone have a rooster available?

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Glad you could join us here! You might like to pop by your state thread and see if members in your area can point you in the right direction. State threads can be found here ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

I would recomend that you get more hens of you are getting a roo. One roo can easily handle 10 hens. Not enough hens and he could over breed the girl you have.

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

If you're near Maryland I've got a few buff orp cockerels that are headed to freezer camp in a couple weeks. I'd sale one or two.

Hi and welcome to BYC. A rooster really needs about 10 hens. If you want a roo, I'd suggest consider getting quite a few more hens also.

One hen isn't going to last long with a rooster over breeding her daily.  If you don't want fertile eggs to hatch or  sell  - you hen will do great without a rooster.  She'd be happier with some other hens as her friends.
