    I've been trying for like six months to successfully hatch BBS Orps. I'm on my FOURTH batch of eggs, and these are the children from needmorechickens! BBS Orps, and I do believe that would make them the Grandchildren of Tuffoldhen's BBS Orps...and I am thrilled thrilled thrilled to report that ....

    I HAD ONE BBS ORP HATCH OUT TODAY!!

    I do believe it's a blue, no pics yet, but I do have several more eggs to go.....

    That's not counting my 4 Doms that have hatched.

    Note: I realize one chick doesn't make a great hatch, but when you've set BBS Orps, seen them develop, have them make it all the way to day 21 and NOT hatch, you'd be thrilled with one chick, too!! [​IMG]

    Congrats! After much trying, I have ended up with 2 splash hens, 3 blue roosters, and 2 splash roosters. Hope you have better gender luck than me! I really wish I'd been able to hatch one black bird, and a couple more hens.

    Those BBS Orps do NOT like being sent through the mail. It is truly an accomplishment to get them to hatch!!!
