    And congrats on the new chicks!
    Our TSC will get their first shipment of chicks some time today (whenever the post office calls).
    I can't wait to see what they have.

    just called TSC. they only have buff orpingtons, and cornish in today. guess I will have to wait until tomorrow. they said that new chicks would be arriving all week. some RIR and others that I don't remember. better luck tomorrow. didn't research the buffs very much and don't know about them. the chick clasifier said they were medium egg layers. we are going to only have 3 chicks and don't know if they would lay enough for us. any buffers out there with more info?

    Quote:Buff Orpingtons are decent layers but they don't compare to RIR. If you can only have 3 hens...I would go with RIR or Black Australorps for sure.

    Happy Anniversary! Be sure to take a photo of yourself and your sweetie with the tweeties! [​IMG]

    I go for Australorps, Wyandottes, and Orpingtons. Reliable egg layers and hardy, too.
