    Hmm now that I really look at her, is she a production red or buff Orpington?

    Sorry, those white feather give it away. Where did you get her from? They are really awesome layers :) I have two of them and I get giant brown eggs.

    Our local feed store, Roswell Livestock, it's our town animal supply store, they ordered their chicks online though. I have two black sex link so I know they lay great eggs, I get 2 big brown eggs a day from them. I just wanted to expand my flock with new breeds that's why I wanted an Orpington
