    Orpington with Beak Injuries

    When I was out with the hens as they were free ranging tonight I noticed the ones beak looked off. I grabbed her to get a closer look and the tip is broke and there is some black buildup towards base of beak. Black buildup may just be dirt from pecking around yard and run. Is this cause for...

    Aggressive Buff

    We are long time chicken folks and have always raised Buff Orpingtons. Because of the pandemic we had to use Hoover Hatchery, which was new to us. Our buffs in this batch are terribly, horribly aggressive. Has anyone else had this issue? thanks!

    Buff Orpington Random Deaths

    It's been a while since I've been on this site so I hope this is the right place to ask. Recently I just learned that a member of our flock, our sassy buff orpington hen, just passed away unexpectedly. When told this, I remembered another buff orpington hen we owned years ago that suffered the...

    Is Nugget a roo?

    Nugget is a three weeks old Buff Orpi and we're starting to have suspicions that they're a rooster (or cockerel at this point.) Is there anyway to tell this or is it too early? We were sold them as pullets but I know these local hacteries can make those mistakes. They're getting their waddles...
