My flock... Big Red, crowing, and just some of his favorite ladies...
Update: Most of my not-so-bright Buff Orpingtons have finally learned to use the roost...and only a few have learned to use the nesting box...proving that stupidity clusters. ;-) lol
CK, IMO, they ARE good layers! I like the Buff Orpington better than the Leghorns or Rhode Island Reds because they're not as "edgy" or high strung. Buff Orpingtons, have a calmer disposition, so between that and the size of eggs they lay, I'm very happy with the breed. :-) ...I think they're a prettier breed too. They remind me of chickens you see in art paintings. :)
