The bird on the right in the last pic is cuckoo. I'm honestly not sure how to tell lavender cuckoo from blue cuckoo or blue barred.

From what I can see, that's the bird I would keep, but I'm a sucker for barred roosters smile.png . He does look to have a nicer type than the first bird, though. 

Is that a little Fayoumis cockerel in the front? He's a cute little guy. 

I think that's a Silver Campine but I'm not totally sure on that one. I've tried catching him but he's quite flighty. I was told that was a hen but I haven't validated that story either. 😕 I would assume that it's a Campine just because she said she bought those from Tractor Supply so I wouldn't think that a Fayoumis would be mixed in there but I could be wrong!

I had some lavender orpington eggs given to me, but they met with tragedy. I would like to try to hatch again and I want to know what the ideal lavender orpington is supposed to look like. What is the orpington-type build? What are they supposed to look like when grown? WHat is yellow leakage?Donrae, what is the "body shape" supposed to be for a lavender orpington? And what is a fair price for a lav orpington rooster, I think I had three of them. I was thinking that they would have been too many roosters for my backyard....
