    I knew I shouldn't have opened this thread. Thanks. Another color I want. I think I could honestly be quite happy with Orpingtons, Cochins (LF and Bantams), Ameraucanas and EEs. I like Wyandottes though, too... Anyways, the point is that Orps and Cochins come in so many colors! -avoids searching for chocolate Orps-

    Get ready for a mad rush of chocolate, straight off the plane from Europe!

    (I'm drooling myself...it's going to be time to head back to his house to hug on these things...)

    Most of the heirloom hens look black. Chocolate roos should be darker than the hens.
