    I had another small hatch today. Three weeks ago I set 4 BBS orps and 3 Red eggs.

    This is what I found today in the bator.

    Look how light their legs are, Cyn. Red has very dark slate legs. The buffs you know what white. Their legs are not really pinkish but they are not real dark either. I need some white legs!

    What do you think might happen if when the reds are grown you cross red x red?
    Won't it be neat to have red, splash, and blue Orphantens.

    Ooops! Sorry about that. I meant Orpantungs, but my fingers hit the wrong key.
