    We are new (about 6 months) to the backyard chicken thing. We have 5 Buff Orpingtons that have become a part of our family in Southeast Ohio.
    My wife and I have been reading the website since we first got the chickens and it has been extremely helpful in understanding what we are doing and supposed to be doing.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining. :eek:) Buff Orpingtons are a wonderful breed. I've raised them for years, and they are hardy, friendly and gentle (my children and granddaughter made lap pets of them), and good layers of large, brown 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 BOs.
