    As you can see the lacing is very poor, not all of the correct genes are present & it is on the wrong gene at the e-locus. The bird's type isn't very good either, but it could be worse I suppose.
    Seems I've cut his comb off in the pic, (I'm not a good photographer).....probably just as well as the comb is too big anyway. [​IMG]

    Nice broad chest on that male Krys. I assume you'll work to thin out the lacing on the breast, and shorten the comb, but otherwise, he's a cracking good start.

    Maransman -- As the standards for the orpington breed in the US and the Uk are different that remark is flaming and inciteful to those who breed orps here and follow the standard set by the APA.

    I am publically issuing a warning that the next flame on these threads will result in the closing of the thread and banning will be discussed among the staff regarding the person who is commiting the offense.

    3. No Flaming (verbally attacking people or groups of people - e.g. a profession, an organization, a company.)​

    Do you have any pics of the hens? I bet they are gorgeous. I just love seeing the orpingtons, they arent the right breed for me but they are so pretty.

    flyingmonkey, I'm in agreement w/you. Not the right breed for me, but I LOVE the looks of them! Always have, always will. I think he's gorgeous! [​IMG]
