    These are my 4 week old orps from jimmy47 and jebrab. From Jim's eggs I got 3 blue and 1 black and from Jane 3 blues and 1 splash. They are great looking chicks (even though they're kind of at that "tween" stage. I'm really hoping the black is a hen as I've already got 3 black roos [​IMG] You can also see some of the RIR's I hatched from ZuniBee - also great chicks.

    The last photo looks like all boys to me. I only hatched 1 pullet from Jimmy's eggs and I had to cull her.
