    Thanks! I still can't get over the LS, they are HUGE, you can almost feel the ground shake when the biggest roo lumbers (not runs) by. I see alot of promiss in the Buff's as well, Sharon got eggs from some of the top names in the "orpington world" last spring. I can't wait until they finish growing out.

    Quote:They are just as calm and laid back as can be. They are still young and just starting to lay now, great birds. These are a mix of Bradshaw, Dingle and Grisham lines.

    Well, this is my first time for chickens. I have always loved them and wanted some for my own. We wanted eggs....to start. We had no idea what we wanted and mostly got mixed. So far all have been healthy and have stayed safe. I have kept my BO rooster although all the hens are RIR (the roosters that match them are ALL gone now). I already know that in the NEXT pen and coop that my husband will not talk about yet that I want BO's. My BO rooster is beautiful.

    But those Light Sussex look the way I think a chicken should look! I will put much thought into my next flock.....would love some of those.

    Half the buffs came from a person that got them direct from Doug Akers, The other side from Don Chandler, president of the United Orpington club
