I got a tiny new Buff Orpington rooster as a pet on April 2, 2016 as a day old chick. I fell in love immediately with his soft down covered little body! My husband and I live in a very small town (pop. 16), and are raising a tiny flock of assorted chickens - the Buff rooster, and his lovely hens - 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Rhode Island Reds, an Ameraucana, a blue Orpington and a black sex link. I found this site by accident but love it! We can always use advice and I think I've found it here. I'd love to get to know everyone on the site and look forward to reading the many articles and threads here.
