    Hi My best friend is a "Penny'' known each other since we were 18! I'm with you on the parrot cockatiel thing too flappy.I had a pet black orpington as a child so knew I wanted the breed.Funny buff orpingtons are less common here go figure.The other colours are more common.My splash started laying around 5 and 1/2 months and hardly missed a day since [about 3 weeks] The others are a little younger.They mostly sit around like old ladies at a church picnic.Don't fly too fat!

    Yay! Another Penny! (It's funny how we reach out to each other because of the name. I do it too)
    They are buff orpingtons. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I've always been a little spooked by birds--parrots, cockatiels, etc. So I googled "Friendliest chickens with mild manners that lay eggs", LOL, and that's how I made up my mind. My backyard supervisor is learning to guard and not taste the feather thingies that run around the yard. Hahaha
