    Hi! I'm new here as you may have guessed since I am sitting here typing in "New Member Introductions." We have a small hobby farm. We have Black Jersey Giants, Buff Orphingtons, Leghorns, and some rather strange combinations of that list. They have about 2 acres of free roam land. We originally had one Leghorn rooster that was complete horror to deal with, but now we have his three sons who don't take a second look at us. That pretty much it! [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm sorry your Leghorn rooster was such a problem, but I'm glad his sons are fine. Leghorns are high strung and flighty, but Jersey Giants and Buff Orpingtons are both calm and gentle breeds, and any cross between them and your Leghorn would certainly be a calming influence in their offspring. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
