Thank you! My husband named Lady Liberty and I Love it too! My kids named most of the others. I'll post pics again, maybe in a week and will definitely let you all know if any turn out to be Roos. We had a roo lavender Orpington too! Sadly he had to go back to the breeder. He was gorgeous!!

They sure are!  Here's a picture of Silver when I had to believe he was a Cockerel & not a pullet :(  Love Orpingtons, they're my favorite breed (at this time) yet I don't have any this time around.

He was 15wks in 2013, that is one chicken I still miss!  Penner who started my chicken craze, was a Blue Orpington that was picked on so the breeder gave him to me.  Was hoping for a pullet but turned out to be cockerel :(  Rehomed him, seems I miss the Roos more, those two were my favorites :)

I am so excited I have a mixed flock for my first group. So far the lavender orp, barred rocks and black sex link age my favorite. We shall see once the get older! We had to take 4 cockerels back to the breeder and we loved them all! It was sad!
