    Hello everyone! My name is Madelin. Just getting into raising chickens for the first time. Have 16 buff orpingtons they are almost 12 weeks old! I also adopted 3, 4 year old BOs and 4, year old Rhode Island Reds. Enjoying them dearly. Looking forward to learning discussing and getting some insight on these beauties!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Buff Orpingtons are a wonderful breed; hardy, friendly and gentle (great lap pets), and good layers of large, brown eggs. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
