Yes, my buff orps were from murray mcmurray. I still have the hens. They are sooo bold and curious, unlike my cochins and brahmas. Goldie will tug on your pant leg when you walk in the chicken yard carrying scratch or some other treats as if to say, "hey, here I am, down here, oh yummy, come on, here I am, let me at it" Still good layers at 3 yrs. I get an average of about 5 eggs per orp per week. And my little Goldie, when a pullet, layed almost every day, 7 eggs a week her pullet year. We could tell her eggs from the others when she was separated to heal some torn feathers from those bad roos. She lays long skinny, torpedo shaped eggs. What color of orps do you all have?
