    I have 4 Buff Orpingtons. They are 2 and a half months old. This is my first time doing anything with birds so I'm learning a lot. I strongly suspect two of them being roosters so they have to go. I'm prefer to give them away or more ideally trade them for similarly aged hens. I will kill them if I have to but I'd rather they just go away safely! I don't know how to do that. Anyone in Utah want 2 healthy Buff Orpington roosters?

    I'm jealous! I would rather my Orpington was the roo than my Sussex. Think my chances of having a sweet rooster would be better. But I do love my Coraline. Everything I've read about Orpingtons being gentle is on the mark with her.
