    I just wanted to show off how pretty these 12 week old blue orpingtons are. I got them today from TuffOldHen. You can read about our meet-up over here .

    When she first offered the cockeral I knew I had to have him. She was kind enough to give me a same age pullet to keep him company.

    Aren't they pretty?

    Nice looking pair you have there. I was lucky enought to hatch out a pair of my own from speckledhens eggs. I'm also trying to figure out good names. The blue orps are such a beautiful breed. [​IMG]
