We are now about 4 weeks into our Buff Orp chicks and they are getting more beautiful by the day. We will be moving them from our house to their house pretty soon. I could not find any locally so we ordered them from My Pet Chicken and they are healthy, active and very pretty. Thia gives us 4 chicks and one hen about 4 months old. The hen was a roadside rescue from a truck hauling them to the production plant. I rescued a rooster and a hen but the roo died about 3 weeks ago. They were apprx 5 weeks old when we got them and they both weighed nearly 5 pounds. The roo simply outgrew his heart and I bet he weighed nearly 10 pounds when he died. There is something just not right about producing any animal to grow at that rate.
