    I am going to get a couple buff orpingtons today. With the last time of just listening to the lady at the feed store ( and actually looking at the pics of them from a couple days old the coloring was right for my roo to be a hen can't fault her) anyway we don't have many choices around her to get chicks either. They have buff orpingtons there. I want to make sure I get 2 hens. Can anyone give me advice or tell me what to look for? My rooster will be going to a great home today or tomorrow with a bunch of ladies. I'm happy for him. :)

    Awesome. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it!!


    Keep fingers crossed for me tonight and tomorrow (if I can't get there in time tonight going tomorrow) but cross those fingers that I get 2 hens out of the 10 they have.
