    I just love Orpingtons but I'd also love to have some other colors in the flock without sacrficing the Orp type and personality. I've heard of some projects going on but would like to see everyone's pictures! I just love seeing others' birds [​IMG] Even though the blues, blacks, and splashes are seeming to get pretty popular, you can show off those too!

    Right now I've just got a few buffs, including my big boy Clyde, who is just the sweetest roo ever [​IMG] Still need to get some pictures of him!

    What on earth is a black copper Orpington? Never heard of that even across the Pond. I have blue/black/splash Orps.

    Oh! All the blues are so pretty! I love splashes too [​IMG] But andalusian...has got to be my favorite color! In both pigeons and chickens, the color is just stunning. The lacing on the feathers makes it even better [​IMG]

    Speckledhen, you're so close and yet so far! I wish I lived closer so I could possibly talk you into giving me some eggs, haha [​IMG]

    I know, Mary. So much of NC is sooooo far away! Rareroo, I don't currently have any splashes. I just sold the only two I had to crazyhen in NC. I have one black hen, but she is finishing her molt. After my big blue turkey, Suede, has passed on, I won't be breeding them any longer, so I didnt keep any except my three blue hens and the Suedenator.
