Hello All, We are new to Chickens (My 14 year old daughter and I) and have been learning tons on the site in the past few days! We have 3 BUFF ORPINGTON HENS that we got when they were 8 months old so they were already laying when we got them. All have adjusted very well and we got eggs from them the first day we brought them home. One gal (Henreitta) is especially smart and friendly. We have named them Hattie Mae, Henreitta and Harriett. Glad to meet Everyone!! Dana (mom to Lauren, the human child) & 6 doggies (Duke, Zander, Anika, Lil Girl, Ajax & Evie) and now the 3 hens!
