So I'm really in love with those beautiful peachy colored BO's and seeing as how one of my BR's died suddenly, and one of my EE's is not in perfect health (history with issues including crooked neck and a confusing wound on her heiny) I was thinking about taking my chances and getting 2 BO chicks. I Have heard some really cool things about the breed and would REALLY like to have one or two. For now I have 4 pullet's.... no roos.... What do you think? Good o bad idea (my girls are 12 weeks old, around a bout)


And how should I break he news to the dh? Just go to the supply stor and bring home a peeping box? I'm surehe will shake his head but really love the fuzzy butts....

, no pecking. As you can tell I'm a BO fan so I say GOOOO FOOOORR IIIITTTTT!!!!

Well if you want broody hens go with the buff, but be prepared i can not get my 6 to stop setting they don't even get off the nest when all the eggs have hatched
