    I think we're close to the rainbow when it comes to orps here. lol I do sometimes have extra eggs available, but only in small quantities if you're interested. Send me a PM. I'm glad you like them.

    You've done a wonderful job with the type on those lavenders. So many people get a new color of a breed, and just breed for color. You've improved your type amazingly. I dont think theres any mistaking that those are orpingtons, You've obviously been very careful to breed for type as well as color, and it shows. Great job.

    halo, thanks so much for noticing our efforts. We knew it would take lots of patience and heavy culling. The next run on these black orp boys will add some final touches, I believe. Only time will tell. I have my first split chicks coming from my black boys over the lavender girls and am looking forward to growing out their babies. [​IMG]

    Sandy, I'll keep my fingers crossed for eggies for you soon. [​IMG] I know you are working hard with yours as well and it is showing. Thanks for taking on this project (and the patience in developing them) with us. [​IMG]
