Ok, so I have had a couple of Buffs for about a month or so now. Given to me because the previous owner didn't want them anymore. They are approx. 20 weeks right now. I am observing the characteristics of them deciding whether or not I want anymore of them when I get new chicks in the spring. Here is what I have seen so far. 1. Very docile and sweet. 2. They don't like to go out in the weather(rain) as much as my BSL do. 3. They will forage but again not as much as my BSL's do. Everyone else can be out of the coop running around in the grass and they are content sitting in the coop. 4. They seem for lack of a better word, prissy. They seem to prance across the yard. A whole different gait then the BSL. I could see them very mothering and may keep one or two around for broody purposes but don't know in my grand scheme of good egg layers if they are going to be the best breed to have around. Am I totally off the mark on this breed or does any of this ring true?
