    Pros - Good layers, very friendly, cold hardy, good broodies.
    Cons - Loud hens, not that good with heat.
    IMG_0514.JPG Buff Orpingtons are awesome! They are so friendly! Mine will follow me around. She is protective of her eggs when she's broody, but won't peck if I take them. She is also very beautiful! I only have 1, but I want more. Here she is on the waterer.
