    These are by far my best layers. Out of 5 hens I get 4-5 eggs per day even on days when the temps dip down into single digits. All are so nice and calm. These are actually my son's "yellow chickens".

    Thanks. The hens are just a little on the rough side because the rooster is a really active boy. He could cover 10 hens no problem. I just have 5 in with him now.

    That is a funny pic- she's eyeballing me. [​IMG]

    Thanks Jody. There's definitely a reason why they belong to my 4 year old. They are calm enough for him to help tend them without me being worried constantly. He's quite the little chicken farmer.

    FYI: I am going to be selling eggs from these Buff Orps later this week.

    Jared they're gorgeous!! "yellow chickens" hee hee [​IMG]

    4-5 eggs thats a good rate - with my Red stars I'm still getting 5-6 eggs a day out of 6 birds, they never stopped laying all winter long. Now I dont know when they'll molt but I'm sure it'll be soon
    [​IMG] then no more eggs for me for a while.

    Hey - how long do they stay in molt for? [​IMG]
