    I just got some bbs orp eggs from speckledhen when I got my Del eggs.
    I know NOTHING about this breed, except that Suede the Daddy of these eggs is (don't get mad at me Cyn if I get this wrong) 16lbs. What should I be looking for when the eggs hatch as far as color of the chicks, size, spots, dots, stripes, etc? Are they the same size as other breeds when they are born? How fast or slow do they grow? What will the adult colors be? Any and all info is a help because I am clueless about this breed. [​IMG]
