Buff Orpington Chickens
I think they are beautiful. They are supposed to have wonderfully soft feathers and I like it that they won't necessarily want to "fly the coop". I want to make sure that when they first arrive, I hold and cuddle my little chicks so when my Grandchildren come to visit, they will be comfortable with being held by little hands. Orpington's have small combs on their heads so that they won't get frostbitten too easily and they lay about 200 eggs per year. I've ordered two of this breed because I think they'll be a favorite with the girls! I just hope they aren't twins so that I can tell them apart!

- Last year, I bought a chicken coop that was made by someone that I love dearly and decided to raise some chickens. Well... we'll see how this quest develops as Spring fades into Summer and the chicks arrive in early June! Check out my YouTube channel www.youtube.com/fbideas for the most recent videos I've posted!
