    I have often shown you Mosby my big blue orpington cockeral.

    Behind him has always been Bonnie Blue.

    She decided to let me photograph her today.

    She is almost 27 weeks old.

    I am still waiting for her to lay me an egg.

    Those big girls take a lot longer to start laying than some of the other breeds.

    She is beautiful Angie! I have a very soft spot in my heart for the Blue Orps. They are gorgeous chickens! I can hardly wait for mine to hatch! (I'll cry if they don't.)

    I'm happy that Bonnie Blue let you take her picture. Thank you so much for sharing! [​IMG]

    She is pretty and fluffy. I go out every day hoping it is like easter but so far no eggs from her. I do know he is mating her. She just needs to give me some eggs!
