    I was thinking of getting some orps but would like the spash or a different color other then the buff. Can anyone point me to some pics? Or share some pics with me please?

    Here is a youngster I hatched, Suede's brother in fact. Don't have him any longer, and you won't usually find anyone with an entire flock of splashes. They usually are a by-product of breeding blue to blue, which gives you blue, black or splash OR breeding splash to splash. I dont get many splashes from my blues, usually only one per hatch. If you want them, you'll probably have to incubate them or get someone who has blues to custom incubate some straight run chicks for you. They are rare.
