    I am planning my projects that i am going to be starting on next year. I am up on the fence here on doing Chocolate Orpingtons, these would be the recessive chocolates that breed 100% chocolate (like lavenders breed) not the Dun chocolates. I seen there used to be quite a few people wanting them, as they are very popular in Europe but not seen here. Granted I know this will take time to achieve, but my question here is, is there interest in this variety? Any opinions will be welcome.

    From what I have seen and heard you would be the biggest hit on BYC I know I would be interested.

    Just what I need. Another chicken that I just have to have. If you achieve a true chocolate you will be very popular. Add me to your list. Please remember that I'm an old grandpa and can't make many long range plans, so you better hurry.[​IMG][/img]
