    Nice coop! The birds are pretty [​IMG]

    Now you need to let chicken math take over and get a variety. [​IMG]

    Nice Coop! I have a couple of Orps close to the same age as yours, but I think they might be White Orpingtons because they're not really tan like yours. still new and trying to figure it all out!

    Thank you everyone. I was hoping they were buffs. I did have a variety, but gave 6 chickens to a friend. Was concerned with the winters here. Wanted to be sure I had enough room in coop and With all I have read buffs do real well in cold weather, so that's why I kept all 6 buffs. Plus, I can't believe how friendly they all are. Jump on my lap and I can pick all of them up with no squirming or squawking. Very sweet loving birds. Thank you on the compliments on the coop. I did not build it. I had it made. It's pretty cool. Would like run to be larger so I may add on to that in the future. Thanks again everyone.[​IMG]
