  1. I am seeing these eggs on E-Bay and was wondering how
    one can make the Crele Orpington at home ......
    I know that years can go into getting a nice bird like this with
    dedicated commitment to achieve a certain strain or look.
    but for the BackYard Enthusiast, how can one get close to this look ?
    All the egg sellers say it is VERY VERY RARE !!
    But, then they go on to say the hen lays 250 eggs per year.
    Seems to me, that after a couple of years, you would be overrun
    with them..... then, they would not be so rare ??

  2. couldn't get the pic to post . . . .
