Buff Orpington chickens are a top-rated favorite among hobby farmers and families. With thick, tan plumage giving them a rounded appearance, the Buff Orpington looks like a big ball of fluff, and this breed is especially popular with children. Buff Orpingtons are especially docile, and they are the preferred breed for pets. If children are handling the chickens, this is the best breed to add to your flock. Because of their heavy bodies and thick plumage, Buff Orpingtons cannot fly, and their feathers are also not waterproof, so it is ideal to have a place for free-range chickens to find shelter from the elements.
