    Tinker is a prospect. Looks like the right color. Not overly fluffy. He's got the right stuff!

    LahFawnDuh is my Russ Milkey Black Orpington hen. I like Russ's girl. I am new to Exhibition Poultry and had been told she was decent quality. Not top show. But, me being me have to make a go with her.

    I thought Flozelle would be perfect.
    I am from New York City originally. Even though I have been told to whack him by breeders who know alot more then me, I will use him on my Milkey girl. I don't think that is too bad an idea.

    He ain't perfect, but beggars can't be choosers.
    Genetically, is all that matters.

    To say that Dawn Suiter did me right is an UNDER STATEMENT!
    THANK YOU DAWN!!

    I have Dawn's girls giving my newbies lessons on how to make a great first impression

    Second to last of the Buffs hatched out this spring/summer
    This pen has 10 Buffs only 2 are girls
    Guess I will have a few boys to pick fro

    I actually thank Charlie for the encouragement to try and make some new and different varieties in Orpingtons to give me the reason to keep this boy and his sis. I know the plan was to make a Jubilee Orp from a Speckled Sussex and a Buff Orp. My accidental breeding occured in early Feb of this year. I had 2 of the three eggs that I believe to be from this mating develope.
    Here is, soon to be shown as a New Hampshire Red, PUMPKINHEAD.
    Why a New Hampshire? Cause Doug thinks he is more New Hampshire looking. Doug sent me pics of his New Hamps at this age, and Pumpkinhead looks like a New Hampshire.
    This is Doug's New Hampshire Red. Not sure IF this boy of his is from the awesome German imported New Hampshire Red cock bird. But there is enough resemblance to give me the go on SHOWING my first project bird.

    I am Cuckoo over my Cuckoo Wyandotte and Orpington PROJECT birds
    What does one do with a pair of Cuckoo Orp cockerels?
    Take one to a BUFF? Better use my very lite ones. The rejects. That is how I operate

    Here are some of Bamma babies I hatched. For sure the girls rule in this pen. I am going to keep the splash, prolly not the Black boy. I swore on my dead cats grave to make a go at some English style Orps. I just need an English Style Black. OH I have some! lolol
    Thanks Julie!!!!

    My R00Pert, Bruno and Bruno's boy update.
    I have only one real Birchen Marans girl. Not only she is less then average, she lays a liter egg. And she appears to be less then enthused about being a mate to either bruno or his boy.


    Once there was a cock bird named BUSTOFF. He was the mutt from a Buff Orp hen and mutant hatchery Australorp Orp. He grew very fast. He was 10.8 lbs at 11 months old. And perked the interest of some of the highest quality Orpington breeders in the country. WHY?
    I decided to see what he is all about.
    He has two Orpington girl friends


    He is the BUS

    They had some babies. They looked like this.

    Black Orpingtons are built different then Buffs. And should be judged that way. But, they never do beat the Buffs.
    At the beginning of the year I was all wound up over my tails. I wanted nice tails and willed them upon me till I talked to Jack at our State Fair.
    He said the first thing he looks at is the head. He wants BIG heads. And then a wide load body.
    So, I shifted my will on making the BIG HEADS. I believe in ESP, mind over matter type stuff. It can't be just luck!
    In honor of the Swamp People Show on HIST, (They hunt Gators) and the best guy (Troy) wants the BIG HEADS.

    So I call these the BIG HEAD BLACKS
