Hi everyone. We are relatively new to the chicken raiser world. We were given 5 buff orpington chcks last spring. I love love love them. We are down to 4 now-one got sick last week and was finally put out of her misery last night. We also have a rooster who we love, but is getting a bit grumpy with kids and strangers. Still, he loves me! And he's so gorgeous. We will have lots of questions over the next few weeks as we go into spring and hope for a few more babies. Good to be on the forum.
