    One question: How many points on the comb are the orps supposed to have? I'm wondering if my Louie has too many points.

    They should have 5 points.

    Jody, do you have a waiting list for Buff Orp eggs or do you just put them up for sale as you get them? I ask because I am interested in buying some more from you but I am not sure what my time frame is at this point.

    Sometimes I have a waiting list and other times I don't. It depends on the season mostly. Right now I do not have a list and just post when I have some available. I will be starting some test hatches on them soon. Just let me know when you're ready for some and I'm sure it won't be a problem.

    Thanks Halo and YOTR! You can't beat the massive size on the orps and the wonderful temperment to boot. [​IMG]

    Jody, they're really beautiful! Nugget is a fiesty girl. She is a mean woman while on the nest, too. I have very roomy nests and that girl puffed up at me when I walked by and scratched her on the head. She'll peck me, too, if I reach under her. She is so HUGE that she fills most of the nest when she does her beach ball imitation. I'm betting she goes broody this spring. Whatcha think?
