Yesterday, all of my black chicks (Barred Rocks & Black Australorps) got to play in the lawn. Today it was the Buff Orpingtons' turn. They weren't nearly as adventurous as the other chicks. They pecked around in the grass a bit, then eventually they all ended up in my lap!
It's funny how the differences between the breeds becomes noticeable as soon as you separate them. The Orpingtons seem very sweet, quiet and shy while the Australorps are much bolder and outgoing. The Barred Rocks are somewhere in between. And then there's our one Silver-Spangled Hamburg, who marches to the beat of his own drummer. He's the smallest of the flock but in his mind, he's the largest!
