Hey guys glad to find out there is a forum to help answer all my questions. So far I don't think there has been anything I havnt been able to find here. I'm pretty new to this had to teach myself but love it I get a kick out of my girls they are hilarious to watch in the back yard. I have 4 buff Orpingtons and one RIR mixed with americauna. Sad the mix doesn't lay colored eggs just speckled dark brown. Lost my 5th buff to a crop issue she was a good girl but I was told not to expect my whole flock to make it to maturity. First year any advice serious issues people could fill me in on that I wouldn't really know from the experience in my first 8 months of having my girls?
