Good luck in getting your Buff Orps.
Hello from Tulsa, OK - Page 2
Hello!! I am also from Tulsa, and I am just starting the process of starting my chicken raising. Did you use someone local to get your chickens? I would prefer to buy local than ordering from Tractor Supply or Atwoods. Did you get any other breeds along with your Buff's? I have been thinking about those as well as Langshans, I have read they will both handle our weather well and have the same types of temperament.
I did use a fairly local guy. He lives in Muskogee and met me in Tulsa to bring my girls to me. I was afraid of getting chicks
at Atwoods as well because I didn't want to take a chance on getting any roosters. I got Cinnamon Queens and Barred Rocks from him. His name is Scott Helms. I know he is a member of Tulsa Backyard Chickens on Facebook and I'm sure you can message him there.
My girls have done just fine in the weather this year, although it hasn't been that brutal - yet ;-)
Let me know if you have any other questions and you can message me on FB as well.
- Love is Silkie soft!
