    I decided to get buffies because I read they were easy going and friendly. I never expected they’d be quite this nice. They’re like my dog!!! I get in the car in the morning, they’re freaking out cause I going! I drive in the driveway, they’re piled in the corner on top of each other squawking and squalling!!

    I have eight of them total. Seven are super nice. I was in the pen this morning watering and feeding when the one who's kind of standoffish came over. I bent down and held out a hand. She eased over and put her bill on my finger. I scratched her waddled, she clucked quietly. It was cute. God, I’m a wuss…..

    We had buff orpingtons also. They were very gentle birds. Our rooster was named King David(because he had a harem).

    My buffs are the friendliest, too, except for Stumpy, the rooster, he's not happy with me because I had to keep catching him to cover his butt with Vicks, the girls were constantly picking his tailfeathers out and he had a bloody bum [​IMG] I do wish I could keep him, but if he's noisy (as he no doubt will be) he'll have to go.

    My buff roo is very standoff-ish. He was bought at a swap, and was pretty much 'wild' when I got him. Ah well, he's good to his girls, and thats what matters to me!

    I have three BO and wouldnt trade them for anything.
    Audrey comes running over when I open the brooder and jumps on my hand to be held. Mae and Olivia are a bit shy. But they arent as pushy about it.
    I plan on making a designer chicken carrier for Audrey so I can take her everywhere with me. Paris has her little toy dog and I have my BO Audrey:D

    I have 4 Buffs they are now just over 8 weeks old, and they are all friendly although one of them seems to be a bit stupid compared to the others. That would be the one to the back of the picture. [​IMG]
