    Oh how purdy! They are just as purdy as a spotted pup in a red wagon. Gotta get me some of those to go with my buff orps and white orps.

    Those are beautiful Julie! How old are they? Those chicks I hatched I think the batch is pretty cockerel heavy.....its okay Im just glad I got a good hatch. It does look like I have a Splash pullet though. [​IMG]

    Those blue Orp boys can sure give you "The Eye", can't they? They are so funny. Julie, I got a black cockerel from this last hatch that I think is a real winner. If someone (and you know who you are, LOL) doesn't want him, I may just keep the boy myself!

    Thank you. The top ones are 7 weeks and the bottom pic is of some 3 week olds. They are getting large fast. I need a younger blue Cockeral with the right eye color so i will probably keep one of these. I do have a splash pullet in the younger group but she hides when the camera is in there. I have very beautiful Black Cockeral about 6 months old if anyone needs a black orp cockeral. I have another from another line in the younger box of chicks that I will be using for breeding. I can take pics of the black cockeral if anyone wants to see him.
