    Is the Omlet Coop Big Enough

    Hi. I have 5 buff Orpingtons 17 weeks old. They have an Omlet Igloo for a coop. Tonight I noticed that one of them was sleeping on top of the rest. There’s space for all 5 to roost in this coop, any idea why one would sleep on top of the others? Thank you for the help.

    Adding to Flock?

    Been doing quite a bit of research, and am getting mixed results about the Buff Orpington, of which I have 6 (19 weeks, approaching POL). I absolutely love the breed's friendliness and personality, but I'm afraid I won't get as many eggs as I had hoped for. I am thinking about maybe next summer...

    The Wait is agonizing!!

    I have 6 BO pullets at age 18 weeks. About three are scrawnier, with bright red waddles that have developed quite a bit, and do a squat when I pet them sometimes. The others are bigger pullets, and from my understanding, won’t be as good of egg layers. Any tips/prep, things I should be doing...

    Irregular shaped pupil

    I have an almost 3 year old buff orpington hen who's left eye has all of a sudden changed. She acts normal, looks overall healthy but I'm not sure why it has changed. The pupil is slightly irregular shaped while the eye is a lighter color. The other eye is completely normal. She's lived with the...

    Well, we heard one of our chickens rooster call, which one is it?

    I’m betting that it’s the little one, just Becuase she turned five weeks and has a red comb already and just somehow looks like a boy to me. My question is what do you guys think? We have three chickens. Two are pullets I believe. We have one buff Orpington 7 weeks old, one barred rock (or...

    Hatching / Breeding- when? Genetics and coloring.

    Hi all, I have my first rooster. He is 4 months old and has been quite busy with my hens the last few weeks. My hens are all over a year. Is there a specific age that my rooster needs to be to be fertile? Or is he good to go? Also, I’m wondering how the genetics and coloring will work. I do not...

    Spots on tail

    My Buff Orpington has spots on a couple of her tail feathers. Is this normal? I don’t think it’s dirt. She’s had them since she started to get her feathers in.

    Buff Orpington Hen or Roo?

    This is Aspen, my 18 week old Buff Orpington. I’m about 97% sure that he is a Roo by the looks of his comb, but it doesn’t look as though he is developing many hackle, tail, or saddle feathers, and his bodylooks about the same as his sisters, who I am almost 100% sure are hens. No crowing from...
