Yup, you've got yourself some nice buff Orpingtons and a really nifty coop there!

Nice coop!  The birds are pretty smile

Now you need to let chicken math take over and get a variety.  big_smile

Nice Coop!  I have a couple of Orps close to the same age as yours, but I think they might be White Orpingtons because they're not really tan like yours.  still new and trying to figure it all out!

Thank you everyone.  I was hoping they were buffs.  I did have a variety, but gave 6 chickens to a friend.  Was concerned with the winters here.  Wanted to be sure I had enough room in coop and With all I have read buffs do real well in cold weather, so that's why I kept all 6 buffs.  Plus, I can't believe how friendly they all are.  Jump on my lap and I can pick all of them up with no squirming or squawking.  Very sweet loving birds.  Thank you on the compliments on the coop.  I did not build it.  I had it made.  It's pretty cool.  Would like run to be larger so I may add on to that in the future.  Thanks again everyone.smile
