Hi there, I am Colorado Chick, and have my first set of Buff Orpingtons. The three girls i have are Henny Penny (After the childhood story), Buttercup (After the movie character in Princess Bride), and Pixie (after my niece). I first found BYC about 7 or 8 months ago to learn about the breed that i wanted. A post here https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/buff-orpingtons-chicken-breed-information-pictures sold me especially with the scarlett johansson line. that made me laugh. But after reading about the breed and comparing it to what i have to offer in the yard, they are what i chose. And i tell you i couldn't be happier with them. Those girls can make me laugh! My husband and i are very into birds, he has his master falconry license, so a wide variety of hawks and falcons have been under our roof. We used to race pigeons, i have parakeets, so birds are always in our life. We love feeding wild birds, and dont worry, the chickens will be kept away from the hawks . This website has been a great help, i visit it as often as i can to research how best to take care of my girls. I am very very very into giving my animals the best feed/nutrition that i can, so i have been researching feeds here. I am also preparing my coop for winter, and am researching heated waterers, etc. I spent this afternoon enjoying the sun while reading this website, with the dogs calmy chewing on bones next to me. The chickens were safely tucked in their yard i will post pictures of my set up for the chickens as soon as i can, i just got my camera working again tonight. I look forward to any and all advice you may have. especially when i post pics so you can see my set up, and the chickens themselves, so you can give opinions on their health. Thank you all for the things that i learned while "Lurking" on this website. I look forward to all that i will learn in the future!
