    Hello BYC members!
    Here is thread for the BO owners and interesters.This is for anyone,and everyone.Here we can discuss,post pictures,and talk about the breeds characteristic etc.

    I typically only have 1 BO i like (Little harsh)but the other is just very mean,and scared of me.

    I have 3 BO's they are tall and heavy. I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow. They're my favorite breed. Their names are Dorothy, Rose and Blanche; the Golden Girls. I also have RIR, Dom, BR, EE, and golden Wyandotte.

    I have 2 BO's and both are friendly and come when called. Right now it's below freezing but they still lay an egg per day.

    They are meant to lay about 160-180 a year but some are capable of laying up to 200. And as thestix said some can be good winter layers . :)
