Buff Orpingtons are known as the Golden Retrievers of the chicken world, and she's like a supermodel within her breed. A true beauty with a disposition to match. She hugs the thermometer clock most of the day, hence the name. When she gets up for food and water, the others battle for her spot. Her bestie is our other Buff O.- Gopher. So named because she's always trying to burrow under things.
