    Please name one of your buff orpington hens FluffyBuffy. I had a Buff Orpington hen named fluffy buffy. She was one of my favorite chickens. She was found dead today, killed by a critter, on the day after Christmas, along with one of my black minorcas. We found on Christmas (the day before) also a black minorca and a buff orpington.

    So please give one of your buff orpington hens FluffyBuffy. She was full of spunk, yet gentle, and was a good chicken and mother.
