    Hi all, Brand new to the forum & for that matter brand new to chickens. My family bought a couple of acres in the 'Kinda Country' according to my Daughter last fall & I just finished the coop & fence. I don't want to start out with chicks. I could, but I would rather get some adults & brood a couple eggs. Less labor that way. Anyway - I've been having trouble finding good Buff Orpington hens for sale.
    I want 3.

    Drop me a note if you have a few you can part with.

    Thanks

    Sorry that I can not help you with that but I will be raising some Blue Orpingtons later this year and maybe a friend of mine in Wateska can sell me some of hers along with three of my Buff Orp hens from Ideal. If you are willing to go for a drive, PM me and I will let you know what she has available and go from there.

    All I got right now are Spitzhaubens.

    Since you live near Peoria, I got a sis in law living south of Peoria, near Pekin.
