    You sure have lots of gender issues down there, Karen, LOL. Bet you'll never be fooled by huge feet again. They look great. I'm so happy to see CJ! He looks great! Always wondered how he would turn out.

    He is happy now hanging with the Barreds, he has been knocked off the ladder , Mason and Indy do all the breeding with the Blue girls, not sure what to do with Suedster.....LOL
    I have several Orp babies growing out and looks like I got more girls than boys so Suedster will probably get his own set of girls.

    No, see, Suede's women are Suedettes and the babies are Suedelettes. Suede and the Suedettes sounds like a 50's pop group, LOL.

    Lori/MissouriChick traded me Belle for Junior, I had originally gotten both from her. I have enough Orp yungsters around here they will all get girls eventually. I think I even have a young black one that is a boy. I would love to have a Black Roo too .

    You'd never know by looking at CJ that his daddy was a Buff Orpington and mama was a silkie/black banty cochin cross and a frizzle, to boot. Odd combination, but a pretty result.

    Honestly, if you didn't look too closely at the comb, he looks like a slimmer Orpington.
