    Hi everyone,
    I have buff orpingtons, I live in Michigan. I have referenced BYC many times for wisdom and advice and decided to join. I've gone from 17 to 23 chickens down to 14 and 14 feels odd. I count several times at night because it seems like there's 5 of course that's an exaggeration:) but happy to have a link to ask my own questions now.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    Hope you stop by the Michigan thread and say hi, look in the Where am I - Where are you section of the forum. I am also currently downsizing for the winter.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I can imagine having a smaller flock feels weird. There is so much more life in the coop with larger amounts of birds.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Buff Orpingtons are wonderful birds. I raised them for years (still have some in my flock) and they are hardy, friendly and gentle, and good layers of large, brown eggs. My children, and now my granddaughter, made lap pets of ours. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your BOs.
