There are too many breeds and varieties in the world to have them all... but its too hard just to choose a few.

Currently breeding Bantam Orpingtons, Anconas, White Faced Black Spanish, and RC Rhode Island Reds.  Also have Buff, Blue Swedish and Runner ducks along with Chinese Geese.

Jeremy they are cute. They look a nice size too. I have four hatched from the same breed pen yours came from. They are not a week old yet. I have two chocs and two black spit to choc  I am also hoping for a cockerel. When I get a free min I will take some pics. It will be next week though. I am preparing for a weekend of Grandkids from out of town and coordinating a Reception for Sunday afternoon to feed over  a 100 folks. I guess I am back in full swing again.

Roger how are you doing?

I have a confession too. These have hatched. They don't all live in this tight enclosure. I just put them all together for the photo. 3 of them are chocolates that are 3 weeks old. 2 of them are blacks. 9 are chocolates that are one week old. 8 are buffs, but, you can tell which ones the buffs are.

I just did a count on the chocolates. There's one hiding on the far left. You can see his beak.

To clarify, these are bantam chocolates. One is a large fowl project cross. There are no Pure English Large Fowl Chocolate Orpingtons in the US that are legal that I am aware of. Does anyone know who has some? Legal, that is?
