    I Raise Buff Orpington (The Orange / Yellow Colored Ones). They are the calmest, friendliest & lay the most eggs year round than any chickens I e ever raised. The black Buffs are hateful. I sold them all off I get Lg brown eggs every day. I’d get them all winter long but I change up the girls diet so they can stay warm, fatten up & not get worn out. Come early spring they start laying on their own & I change their diet back to 4 grain scratch & lay protein pellets. I use to let them run free but I’ve got 2 eagles in the neighborhood now. GrUmPy

      Interesting. My orps are black, free range, friendly & prolific layers. They started laying again about 2 weeks after molting. They hangout with the sheep, turkeys, other chickens, cats & me.
