Searched again, 4 times, with no luck. Will do another sweep in the morning.

On a brighter note, I got some lav orp pics today.
Excuse the mud, took pics before I got the straw spread out. Young boys are shaping up fairly nicely.

I debated if I was going to keep them after molt, but they are filling in really pretty. They may have earned a stay. And that black one carries herself really well! Psycho Chick has turned out to be the biggest, prettiest, friendliest one. I'm anxious to hatch more now. (haven't gotten a single egg in weeks from them though)

The roosters really get huge!!But they are clumsy, polite boys. Sorry you didn't get a pullet, but he'll be a good boy.

Orpie's daughters still haven't laid a single egg... they hatched at Easter... hmm.png

I like that black in with them... gorgeous contrast...

I have 2 pullets, from Orp/Australorp crossbacks... and an Orp roo... he's the best, but got too many anymore...

Yeah, got the check... not too bad, especially for the time of year... netted a C-note and almost a quarter... wink.png

I need size and my GLW rooster has a hurt foot so as soon as he's big enough I use him there . Big young roosters fetch a good price from Hispanics here . Met a man last year who is always looking for big Bahamas. But my adviser says  they take to long to grow out . Maybe I'll get some Cornish cross hens and a rooster next year and try hatching those :idunno

The only one I have left is solid white, but the hatchmates either looked exactly like daddy or were all white. You are welcome to some of those mutt eggs too, any time!
