    I have 27 Buff Orp chicks that are now 2 weeks old. I have spent a lot of time with them over the past 2 weeks. When I go to the coop they meet me at the door and the girls jump all over me, the males don't have to much to do with me. Which is ok since most of the roos will be in my freezer by the winter. I have been amazed that they grow so fast, they already have wing feathers with some body feathers that are filling in.

    It is good that the boys are not coming up to you. That is a sign of respect.
