    She is one of my original hens. She has just finished a molt in this picture. this was taken in early Dec. She is now awesome. She has always been very typey and gives me lovely offspring. I am going to get an updated picture on her this week sometime.

    She is with Blue Boy right now. My original Large Blue Orp Cock. I will be moving her in with a younger one soon though. I have just got to have a talk with Blue Boy as he is not happy about losing his hens but he is not giving me fertile eggs. I think he is just so big now that he doesn't hit the mark easily like he did the first year I had him and he wasn't so big.
