    Hello all!

    I'm new to the forum, but I recently bought six hens and one rooster to add to our flock of already four hens and one rooster. I am considering keeping one or two hens as pets at my mothers house. I'm having problems deciding who to take! By the way, I'm choosing out of the seven new ones. The other ones are all wayy too old.

    I also don't know what kind of chicken they are.
    I may post pictures eventually, but I don't know when.

    Thank you all

    Bree

    Thank you both!

    I have done some research, and I now know they are Buff Orpingtons.

    Welcome to the forum! You'll find a really warm community here - it's a nice place to hang out for a cup of virtual coffee and have some chicken chat.
