    Hi! I'm Kimberly in Florida. We're just starting off with chickens. We had three Buff Orpington pullets that we purchased in March (my birthday present- it's great to be married to someone who understands you). We lost one right after they went outside. She wormed her way out of the pen and into the dog. Then we found out one of the remaining two is a boy. I think we need to get some more hens, if we're going to keep him. He's jumped on his "sister" so much her tail feathers are falling out.
