    Hello everyone. I am new to having chickens but I have recently gotten 3 Production Reds and 3 Buff Orpingtons. I love taking care of them and my 19mth old son gets excited and loves to be around them as well.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Don't you just love your Buff Orps? I love the Orpington breed...so docile, friendly, tolerant of all weather and great layers too! Orps make great lap warmers...train them up early in life and you can never get them off of you! LOL

    Great to have you aboard and we do welcome you to our flock! :)

    Hi! I'm new to BYC and to raising chickens too and also from Louisiana. We're in Northwestern Louisiana and have 4 chickens that I 'think' are leghorns and I 'think' are 18 weeks old. Although, I have my suspicions that we possibly have all roos [​IMG] They are all huge and have massive legs and bright red faces. [​IMG]
