    Hi! We are buying an acreage, and I will be inheriting 12 laying hens from the former owner. I'm so excited! The former owner told me the flock is made up of Brahmas, Easter Eggers, and she couldn't remember the third breed, but I believe they are Buff Orpingtons. I am learning as much as I can about caring for chickens, and am so glad to find this site. I look forward to sharing and learning from other chicken lovers.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. You are inheriting some very good and docile breeds (technically EEs are not a breed, but hybrids). Brahmas were the first breed I ever had (about 50 years ago), and they were gentle giants. My children, and now my granddaughter (pictured in my avatar), made lap pets out of our Buff Orpingtons. Our Easter Eggers are my granddaughter's favorites though. She loves their colored eggs. 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.
