And the splash
How old are they? They look fairly big your photos. They look really healthy and happy.
They are pretty big! They hatched on 2/6/08 and 2/7/08. The brahmaXorps are even bigger than the Splash orp. I sort of feel the need to hatch the splash a pullet, so maybe sometimes this summer I can get some eggs from someone.
They look rather familiar, Sara, LOL! You are right, the Orp/Brahma crosses are larger than the pure Orps. The pullets look so much alike in both breeds. I have my pure Orp pullet, who is black, and my Orp/Brahma cross pullet, also black like yours. The main difference you notice first is the feathers on the legs and the leg color. The crosses have yellowish legs and the pures have slate legs. The combs are the next difference because the crosses take on the pea combs of their mom, Caroline, or at least, a modified pea. BIG girls!
