    Hello everyone, just wanted to stop in here and introduce myself. My name is Seth and I live in Ohio. Just picked up 4 Buff pullets yesterday! They are a 5 weeks old and doing good in my temporary pen. I raised chickens from the age of 5 to 15. And now at the age of 30 with a toddler we decided that its the right time to have them again. He is amazed with them ( and so am i). I've been out of the game for a while so i may have alot of questions as i dont remember as much as i thought i did!
    Thanks guys and gals!

    Buff Orpingtons are a wonderful breed. I've raised them for years and they are hardy, friendly and gentle (my children and granddaughter made lap pets of them), and good layers of large, brown eggs. Good luck with your BOs.
