    Hi everyone! Ive lurked long enough, time to join! We purchased our first chicks on Easter , 4 buff orphington pullets, raised them up with all the love amd care possible to realize every last one of them were ROOSTERS!!! They became quite aggressive and we weren't prepared to get enough hens to satisfy them, so we had to sell them. It was very hard as we had grown attached but I ended up purchasing 4 lavender orphingtons to replace them and we are quite smitten! 3 hens and a rooster. They arr such a sweet litle family! Im unsure of their ages, was told about 6 months, and I have my doubts as to their breed, but we love them nonetheless and are looking forward to eggs. Any ideas as to age and breed? Thanks and im thrilled to be here, this board has beem such a wealth of information! Pictures to come, unable to upload on phone
