    I wanted some of them for a very long time and finally ordered ten pullets...I am totally smitten with them...they are the sweetest little girls...calm, friendly, run around my ankles with no fear or panic type squawking...they are fluffy and soft feathered...I just love them...they are my favs in chicken world...they are six weeks old now and I have just moved them to the big coop...they are having a blast...it is funny that they stick together and move like a flock of ducks...where one goes, they all go...very pretty girls...I will try to snaps some photos tomorrow as they bounce around in their new world...

    I've only got 2 Buffs but I'm planning on getting more, they're a great breed!

    I've also considered White Orpingtons, they look like fluffy clouds. [​IMG]

    I have 6 BO's are they are nice but go broody frequently. That can be a pain if you don't want any chicks hatching.

    My first flock I had 2, and in my newest flock I have 2 BO Pullets. They are the most curious and sweet little things ever! I love them with the big yellow fluffy butts and bloomers [​IMG]
