I have a flock of all hatchery birds......I wanted to get some bird keeping skills under my belt before I put out a lot of money on nice birds - and the time has come

I have some gorgeous SLW chicks on order for next month from Rebecca @ Foley's....I'm so excited that I can hardly stand it!!!!!!!!!!

Next on my "bucket list" of chickens is really, really nice Buff Orpingtons. I took my neice to the zoo last weekend, and they had some unbelievably gorgeous birds there in their petting zoo area. Loved them......LOVED THEM!

I'm looking for the big, really round and fluffy ones........like these I found on Google:

Hello there,
I have some LF Buff Orps. The are not quiet like thoses, the ones you pictured are English Buff Orps.
I have nice show stock which are really fluffy but not quiet so round as the English ones.

Hi, Sharon! Thanks for posting.......and your Buffs are beautiful!

I sent an email to the zoo asking them to put me in touch with their resource - and you're right, they are definitely the English variety. It seems I may have a really hard time getting my hands on the buff variety in the states - for some reason the BBS varieties have caught on, but not the buff??

I'm going to see if I can locate some English - but I want you to know how much I appreciate your offer to buy some of your beautiful birds.

I spoke to our zoo today - they are going to find out from their "aviary collector" where they get them from. I emailed them last night & they called me today - NICE!!!

I believe I may have what you are looking for. I just need to find the time to get out there with my camera. I have been breeding specifically for that look.
