We are looking into getting 2 chickens, one for each girl. We already have a coop at our house. We want egg laying chickens in the hopes that they can collect eggs and have some fun too. From preliminary research it is looking like Buff Orpingtons may be the way to go.
They are said to be loving and friendly and good egg layers. Their extra feathers are supposed to make them hardy during the winter. They are not prone to escaping and love their owners.
Have you ever had chickens or do you have some? Please post any thoughts or advice or tips!
