    OK, here are some pics of 2 splash and 2 blue Orp chicks I hatched from eggs from MissPrissy and also several chicks from my Barred Orpington project. All of these are between 6 and 8 weeks old.

    Very nice Jared. Good luck with your project. More different colored Orpington. Way to go.

    I am really excited about the Blues and Splashes. They are turning out really well.

    I'm really excited to see a couple of barred cockerels as well. I was really hoping for some to pick from to put with the barred pullets I've hatched so far. In theory, they should produce all barred offspring (I think.)

    Wow, such progress your making. Looking good.
    I wish I didn't need so many pens for my projects. I am now thinking of all the vaccinations I am going to have to give for Fowl Pox in the next three months. These Orps need a lot larger breeding pens even for trios. They need more exercise to keep from getting fat and having a heart attack.

    Quote:I know what you are saying. These chicks are currently just in a grow out pen. I had to cut back on my project aspirations recently so I would be able to focus more.
