    Here's my Nutmeg (Meg). Her sire was a dark breeder quality RIR and mother exhibition size Buff Orpington. She leans more toward the Orp side with white legs and huge body, but with flaming red feathers. Great girl, lots of personality, but very hefty!

    Cynthia I think that since you are no longer working on the Amer. You should develop your own Red Orpingtons. Meg is beautiful, I see real potential for some GLORIOUS birds! Just trying to plant a seed in your head. [​IMG]

    Meg's a special girl for sure, but I'd have to find some good show stock for the rooster and the huge exhibition Buff Orps, too. Meg has some excellent bloodlines on both sides. Bet rooster-red would let me have a cockerel when he hatches some from his nice rooster with my Scarlett, Meg's half sister then I could get some of Jody's nice Buffs. Good project there, Adam! Would have to get DH interested in it, but he's quite partial to our Meggie, so who knows?
