momentary pause from posting "inappropriate" photos for a little chickendom. @Gabby Meriles Fekete happy fancy fowl friday. could've made that an even better alliteration but I'm attempting to not add that "f" word to every conversation. attempting. xox.
This is what Poppy will look like... Buff Orpington. Developed as a dual purpose breed, Orpingtons make fair table fowl and are excellent winter layers of large brown eggs. They have very laid back personalities and make good pets.
Rachel is a Bantam Cochin Frizzle. Cochin is her breed, bantam describes her miniature size and frizzle describes her unusual feathers. Genetics cause frizzled feathers to grow out and curl away from the body instead of growing flat and smooth following the body contour. Frizzle is not a breed, it is a genetically programmed feather type.
Orpingtons have laid back personalities and are very docile. They are great foragers and do well in confinement. Orpingtons are very nice looking birds make great affectionate pets. Due to their timid nature Orpington chicks tend to be on the bottom of the pecking order when raised with other breeds.
