Anyone have any advice on Buff Orpingtons?!
Welcome to BYC!
I have never owned Buff Orpingtons, although I hear they are a great breed, known for their docile dispositions.
I'm sure you will enjoy them!
Welcome to BYC. Feed them the proper feed, protect them from predators and they will reward you with eggs and very few problems. They are generally very mellow birds.
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC.
Buff Orpingtons are a very popular breed. I think you will enjoy yours very much. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
Thanks everyone! i figured it would be a good idea since i am new to the chicken world!
We got the Buffs because they have a good REP on being great birds.
Does anyone have any tips on "training" them to come when called or to go in to the coop when it is time to be locked in for the night?... any pointers
Some treat or other and using the same call or whistle will work in getting them to come to you. Bedtime is in the lap of the gods in my experience.
Use a distinct sound each time-perhaps a dog whistle or your voice-show treat in your hand to lure them into coop. Eventually they'll come by your sound, not needing the treat also. They love their treats lol.
I'm also getting Buffs and super excited about them.
