    I love looking at them out in the yard when their butts are facing the wind and it poofs them out even more! Now I know why people fall in love with the Orps, I [​IMG] mine! Especially Borpy Orfington that I hatched from Nava.

    I love their butts, and I think they constantly like to bend over and show them off to us!

    I know I love them so much because to me, that it what a chicken IS. They remind me of the portrayal of chickens in childrens books! So, in my head , when I think of a chicken, that is what I see. Of course, I didn't know the name of them until recently! I just think of Buffs as the quintessential chicken, I guess. Can't wait to get mine, can't wait til they go broody, and can be mamas for me!
