    Hi, we are new Buff Orpington owners. Our 6 year old daughter had saved up some money, Tractor supply had baby chicks, long story short we now have 12 chicks. We are enjoying every minute of it!!!!! :) My grandfather had several chicken houses for Tyson but I don't really know anything about chickens because they were farmed for meat. We are keeping our chickens as pets and fresh farm eggs. We have been doing a little research but still need a lot of help! Anything you can tell us or advise us to do with our new Buff's would be GREATLY appreciated. Oh yea, if anybody knows where Jack Daniels is made.... that is where we are from ;) good ol Lynchburg, Tennessee!! Come down and take a tour :)

    Congrats on your chicks! Buff Orps are a great choice. Calm and docile and good layers. For the beginning poultry keeper you might checkout the link below. Enjoy!
