    Hi guys

    I own some really pretty and fat cute chickens! I used to just call them golden buff chickens... but that's not their proper name right ?

    So are these buff Orpingtons? Or buff cochins ? Or some other breed ?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Thanks a lot guys!
    I am lucky to have such cute fat buff cochins then! :D
    These guys are pretty large and heavy. Are buff Orpingtons larger or smaller than these ?

    English Buff Orpingtons would be a little larger. American Buff Orpingtons will be smaller.
