    Hey Jody,
    Ya' did it again. Another awesome hatch of buff orps. 11 of 12 eggs hatched for a hatch rate of 91%. The colors are fantastic! This is some of the 11 that are 3 days old. I couldn't catch all of the little buggars. When the first one pipped it was a signal to the others and they all pipped, zipped and hatched together. It was like popcorn popping in there.

    Oh, what colors!

    Didn't mean no harm. lol So sorry.
    Robin, you just got to have you some of these little golden fluffy butts. The colors are awesome and they hatch out like popcorn.
    I've never seen more robust healthier chicks and the way they hatch out is wild.
    Just don't make the mistake and get one dozen like I did. You have simply got to get 2 dozen. lol

    Alright you got me hook line and sinker!

    I will have to start up the bators in the fall or started chicks from Jody! I have a friend (Chicows) not far from me that had some of Jody's orp chicks and they are vivid gold, better than the hatchery ones!

    I didn't have as good a hatch as you, and most were roos [​IMG], but I do have a few of their older siblings running around my run.
