    Buff Orpington (we just call her Buff) was a packing peanut in my February McMurray Hatchery order. It didn't take long for this "extra" chicken to become our very favorite. She is the one who comes when called, who lets us hold her and pet her, who is the first to try every new thing, who moves with the grace of a ballerina. She's gorgeous and what's more, she knows it -- check out her posing for my camera!

    So you got a free hen too. I recieved 7 light brahma packing peanuts that I figured were all roos with my last order and am almost convinced looking at the combs of two of my birds, that I have hens. Thats great if I did, and the buff orp is a great chicken as you have observed. I had to pay for mine though, lol

    Oh, what a cutie pie! I've got 3 buffs that are about 13 weeks old now. They are also the first to try everything! They are a blast, aren't they!

    Oh sure, you're girl's a freakin' ballerina! My Buff Orps were all rambunctious, trouble-making hooligans (hence my screenname).

    she's darling!

    I have one BO and one BR...and the BR is always first to investigate, but once deemed safe, the BO jumps right in and takes over....they are pretty cool...I'm hooked! [​IMG]
