    Hi My name is Janet. I live on the east coast of North Carolina close to the Virginia/NC border. I am from West Virginia where chickens were our sourceof eggs and meat, so therefore I never let myself get to attached to our perspective Sunday dinner! I have always been around chickens but never was the one responsible for their care. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can, I am now the owner of 4 beautiful chickens (hopefully hens)! I plan on getting the eggs but they will not be my dinner!!

    I'm sure your chickens are thrilled to know they won't be dinner.

    Buff Orpingtons are a very popular breed of chicken, good layers, good temperament and beautiful as well.

    BYC has a good section on Buff Orpingtons at https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/orpington. You should check it our if you're interested. I have raised them for years and currently have four of them in my flock. They are beautiful, friendly, calm, gentle, and good layers of large, brown eggs.

    Welcome !!

    I have a couple of bantam sized orpingtons in buff and black. They have both been mothers and have raised chicks together too.
    They are very sweet lap chickens and very beautiful. I would deffo recommend them.

    Best of luck with your flock. Don't hesitate to ask questions.
