Buff Orpington

We love our Buff Orpington Hens!   Buff Orpingtons are a very docile chicken and will not peck at you when being held which is wonderful for children when they want to encounter a chicken. They, also, seem to be very quiet birds for the most part with the occasional cry when they are out of resources, such as food, water, and their favorite laying place.  They are, so far, a pleasant breed to have on the farm and we hope to have many egg-laying years ahead of us.

They are quick learners.  On their second day outside they went right into the coop at dusk.  They are very curious and they will easily follow anything you may be holding in front of them around and around which brings many laughs from young ones.

Our hens enjoy lounging under shade during the warm days or basking in the sun on cooler.  Naturally, they do not like to share their juicy or intriguing finds, especially, when it comes to a big fat earthworm.  Our ladies do not even like to share their yard and will quickly lower their head and fluff their feather to chase it out.

They lay light to medium brown eggs about 2 to 3 times a week.  So, we always have plenty to sell or share.
