    This is my guy Big Buff. He is a wonderful flock rooster and I just wonder how close he is to breed standard. Can you give me an opinion? He's just a year old, and his girls love his tail feathers a little more then they ought.

    He's gorgeous! I don't know much about breed standards, but my girls would certainly swoon. I love the irredescent fluffiness of the Buff Orpington. I'm seriously considering finding my girls a roo this handsome.

    I don't show but he sure is pretty. My BO roo has some pure white tail feathers that I know makes him not SQ. I know they ones I saw at a show were really big and really fluffy nothing like the BO I bought from a hatchery.

    Thank you for your kind words about my big boy. He looks like sunshine incarnate to me. I love the way he looks with the pumpkins.

    He looks nice, but he could use a little more size

    I hatched him from Jody's eggs. He was hatched the first week of Jan 08.
