Hoover's Hatchery Buff Orpington Chickens, 10 Count Baby Chicks is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 186.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 50/50 mix When I purchased, the product headline said 10 female, but I received a 50/50 mix. Not a huge problem for me but definitely disappointed. I think I was sent a straight run. In all other aspects I am happy with the order. The ladies are gentle and quiet. The cockerels are almost ready for slaughtering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our fluffy yellow chicks I ordered our Buff Orpington chicks on Tuesday and we picked them up from the post office Friday morning. All 10 were doing great. We brought them home and got them into their brooder box with plenty of food and water, which they appreciated very much! They are now 2 weeks old and still doing great! We love them!

Are the chicks vaccinated?

Asked by: Giselle
Chicks ordered online are not vaccinated for mareks or cocci. If you wish to protect for cocci you may feed a medicated feed

Do the hens go broody?

Asked by: east272
Buff Orpingtons do have the reputation as being good setters. Most are not broody but because of the nature of this trait from time to time do show signs of it
