    I tried and tried to get a decent picture of both 13 week old Blue Orpington pullets today, but they kept coming out blurry. Here is one of the girls-I have to see them together to know who is who. Smoky has lighter hackles than Dusty and is larger. I thought for the longest time she was a he. So, here is either Dusty or Smoky AND a picture of CJ, whose tail is getting very long, as you can see. He hasnt crowed yet, but his shiny midnight blue saddle feathers are coming in now. He's such a sweetheart and so calm.
