    I am not looking for Show quality color or size(only that she has to be on the big size to pal around with my black)See Pic.. I really just want to replace one the was egg bound. I know that some of you cull because of imperfections in color or show quality issues. Any darker color would work if you dont have black. I will not breed this girl and would not ever sell or say it was from so and so unless you asked me to.

    Anyone know of someone that has a black orp hen or pullet in the sw fla area that is looking to sell or hatch eggs would work.I have a crazy request. I'm looking for a black or and darker color( can have white on her but not be the primary color Orpington English pullet, young hen, or a small number of hatching egg(no more than five)(last resort). Im not trying to break the bank. Any English line of orpington would be good, the the exception of a Buff. If I was to get hatching eggs I only want one hen. So if some wants to have me hatch for them and give me a hen in return that would work. I think I can hatch 4 dozen at a time. My incubator is full for 18 more days. So if you know of someone that has any blacks or other English line please get them in touch with me. The one to the left is the girl we still have. The other is her next to a hatchery Buff orpington. I am in Florida. I would also be open to young chicks or pullet. Was told this would be the best place to start.
