I just have to say...they are the sweetest, happiest, most enjoyable creatures I have ever encountered.

ORPINGTONS ROCK!!

You are so right!
I have buff orps due to hatch tonight. I can't wait to have those little cuties in the brooder.

Ditto! My girls are all so friendly and they're always happy to see me. I can't freerange them because of neighborhood dogs that occasionally pop on the property, but I give them handpicked grasses and clovers daily and they love it when I toss in an armful of pine needles filled with bugs, grubs and other yummy surprises.

And I have to add that there's nothing like watching a buff take a dust bath! They're so full and fluffy, it's insane how much dust they can get up under those feathers!
