Buff Orpingtons are a great chicken breed. There is nothing like a big poofy gold hen. Buff Orpington hens tend to be broody, so if your looking to raise some chicks the natural way, get a couple Buff Orpingtons.

Barred Plymouth Rock

They are a Cold tolerant and dual purpose breed which is nice for some homesteads. A lot of people like to raise chickens for meat and eggs. The Barred Plymouth Rock can be used for both. They lay brown eggs

The Black Australorp

I love these hens. They are so sweat. I have a soft spot for this breed because they are so gentle and nice. If your thinking of starting your first back yard coop and can't decide which hens to start with. Get Black Australorps. You will not be disappointed. They lay brown eggs.

Heritage chickens are an old fashion chicken. A non hybrid chicken. Another way of describing Heritage chickens is, they are a pure breed that has been around for a long time. Heirloom seeds, and Heritage chickens are the same thing in the sense that when you grow an heirloom seed you get the exact same thing as the mother plant that you got the seed from. When you breed two Heritage Buff Orpingtons, you will always get a Buff Orpington.
