Just a chicken story:
When I was a boy, didn't know nuthin about chickens, a guy I worked with gave me two roosters,a RI Red, I named Clyde and a Buff Orpington named Barney. Barney and Clyde started my interest and love of chickens, and now probably thirty to thirty- five years later I am still at it. I just got back into the Orpingtons, they are an awesome breed. Quiet and calm and giant brown eggs, also they do good in the winter up here in NY. No complaints , no arguments, just chicken talk.
I just had a beautiful flock of New Hampshires, the cocks are just plain mean. I had to get rid of them for fear he would hurt my neighbors kid. Now I have Buff Orpingtons, I used to have them when I was a kid. They are cool
