    I have a very limited gene pool and know that I am going to have to introduce other orpington genes to keep it going strong. I am willing to let someone in on this project for a trade of some sort. For the sake of time I really need laying birds not hatching eggs. If any one is interested go to my site for more pics Bluehenhatchery.com PLEASE KNOW THAT THESE BIRDS ARE PURE FROM ENGLAND AND ARE NOT A CROSS BREED FROM WYANDOTTES THEY ARE ORPINGTONS NOTE THE LEG COLOR AND SINGLE COMB. If I could find someone local to work with it would be great. I live in West Tennessee.

    They look very Wyandotte-like in type. What generation are they?

    You cant get straight single combs grey legs and lacedd feathering from wyandotes perhaps you are seeing that they are not a full year old yet.[​IMG]

    And here I was going to tell you that I think you're doing a marvelous job with them.

    But, since you're not looking for comments on them...

    What are the requirements for the "trade" and who/what are you wanting in order to arrange a partner with this breeding project?

    I have some extra Splashes, but i'm not going to offer them outright in exchange for birds I know nothing about! If they're project birds, it helps to know how far along the project is!

    Single-combed Wyandottes do exist, as do laced (such as the Blue Laced Red, Golden Laced, and Silver Laced).​

    I would be open to sugestions I first introduced these birds on here about 3 months ago and had several nay-sayers and doubters so I will confess I am a little touchy. I guese what I should say is if you dont have anything good to say I dont want to hear about it.


    I would be open to trading a hen for a dozen eggs some from the hen and some from mine. If I had someone trust worthy to work with I would be open to other ideas.

    I wish I could participate in your project. Your birds are beautiful I hope you find a worthy partner to share the excitement of developing a new variety. Orpingtons have been the bomb this year. Good Luck

    Boy, now I am hurt. I thought I was your partner. I have a boat load of splash orpingtons and a pen already separated with 3 Splash roos, 8 Splash hens, 2 Black hens , & 2 Blue hens.

    You should have said you were looking for "Splash". I thought you were looking at my golden laced project. I can get you pictures of the Splash pen. PM me and let me know what you have in mind.

    I do agree that they are not wyndotte type they look orphington like to me No wyndottes I have every heard of have had gray or white legs they all have yellow leggs and most have flat combs. I wish I had the facilities or birds to help you with this project.
