The Lavender Orpington's
I got my Lavender Orpington's almost 8 months ago! They are really sweet and pretty! I am so glad that I got them! This is what each one looks like!
This is Quincy! He is my favorite! He started off as the smallest chick then grew into a large handsome rooster. We had ended up with 2 roosters but we decided that we were going to keep Quincy. Everyone said that he was the prettiest out of the 2. At first I wasn't sure if we should keep him or not because he was very skittish! He would run away from everything! It got on my nerves! I was almost ready to knock some sense into him! But he had a reason to be so afraid of everything. First, we had accidentally shut the chicken coop door in his face! He had one eye shut all the time! I felt so bad for him. I thought he would be blind in that one eye, but he somehow healed all by himself. And the second reason is that he almost got killed by raccoons! It happened so quickly! He was just out there eating bugs then he disappeared! We heard a lot of squawking and there was a bunch of feathers on the ground. We went looking for him, we feared that the raccoons had got him, but out of nowhere he comes running out of the bushes with a bloody face! That very moment he came running out of the bushes I knew he was a fighter! He had fought for his life a several times after that, but he is defiantly the best rooster I have ever had! He protects his ladies very well and treats them nicely! I am so glad we chose to keep him!
