Repecca has always been my favorite AND my problem child. She is a 6 month old Lavender Orpington. Extremely friendly, unafraid of humans since day one, craves attention and snacks. Also, she is pigeon toed, doesn't roost, preferring to sleep in the pine shavings, is prone to sour crop, and now wears a bra. She also rules the roost. Her brother is a gorgeous specimen, twice Repeccas size and well groomed, that I returned to the breeder in exchange for pullets. Repecca doesn't have the same sleek feathering as my Buff Orpingtons, or the smooth fan tail, but she also doesn't have the tall bouncy tail of her brother. I wondered if Lavender pullets/hens just maybe looked different than Buff. Her neck feathers get pinched a bit by the bra straps so I'm not sure about the collar feathers. I love this chook! But I can't have a rooster! Is Repecca a crowing hen? Has anyone ever had a House ROOSTER?
