    I just posted this boy a month ago. I wasnt sure if he would really be mature enough to show at the Stockton show, but now I think he will. Here he is a month ago.

    One of the black pullets a month ago, not sure if it is the same pullet. They all look like clones of each other. Talk about a consistant line.

    Very nice. That's one thing I've noticed about my orps....gawky teens one day and much more mature the next.

    Thanks, Im counting the days to bad its not till the end of January. I'll be taking about 15 birds give or take. I really wanted to go to the Ventura show but found out about it to late. I wouldn't of had anything to show either all the older hens and roosters are molting. [​IMG]
