    I have a mixed flock of 3 standards ( 2 EEs and a BSL) and 5 bantams. I am planning on adding another and can't decide between a standard buff orp or a bantam frizzle. Buff orps were what I originally wanted but fell for the bantams and love them! I can't decide which to add..any thoughts or just opinions? Thanks!!

    it all depends on needs... if you want some frizzles they lay eggs at the same pace as other cochins... they are pretty and funny to watch... the Buff Orpingtons lay extremely well and are nice friendly birds... I have cochin bantams and also love the bantam breeds. What I did was get the best of both worlds and bought 3 buff orpington bantams! They aren't full grown yet (only 5 weeks old) but they are super sweet birds as well.
