    We're in the 28th week too and still awaiting blue orpington and blue orpington mix. Neither has shown signs of squatting and only the pure has a red comb which she's had since 22 weeks.

    Quote:Exactly!! Oh well, I still enjoy watching them horse-about, so at least I am getting some pleasure out of them.

    HAH! Makes me think of this Savage Chickens cartoon:
