    Louieandthecrew I am actually a female!

    Okay, I ordered my fifteen female Buff Orpington chicks from Meyer Hatchery! They should arrive anytime between March 1-3 [​IMG] Along with that, I've decided to get three Welsummer hens for my Wellie rooster [​IMG] So, after my chicks get here and my Wellie hens, all in all I'll have:

    Sixteen Buff Orpingtons - Fifteen hens and one rooster
    Four Welsummers - Three hens and one rooster
    My Red Cochin rooster - He is the last one left from my first ever clutch or chicks
    And my Red Sex Link hen [​IMG]

    Can't wait for them to arrive and to sell my other four roosters that I need to get rid of now [​IMG] Thanks for looking!

    They're HERE!!!

    I'll keep you updated as much as possible!

    PRIZE: The first THREE people besides me to post on this thread first will get to choose the name of one of my Buff Orpington hens!

    Quote:[​IMG] One hundred? Wow! After my order comes in and much more (selling roosters, buying Wellies, etc.) I'll still only have twenty-one chickens! Haha [​IMG]

    ETA: I saw that your signature says you have Buff Orpingtons [​IMG] How do you like them?

    My Buffy's are my favorite hens. They lay consistently, are quiet, friendly and go broody on occasion. I don't yet have a rooster, so they haven't gotten to experience motherhood. They handle the cold VERY well, and know how to avoid predators. I have lost Sex-Links to possums, but never a Buff.

    BTW, Love your post signature. King David is my Favorite historical figure. He was human and made mistakes, but he meant good, and God loved him for it.
