    Hello y'all. Started raising chickens for about 1 1/2 yrs. now. My wife thinks I'm crazy because there's lots of work in taking care of them and maintenance. I have a special project going on where I bred my Lavender Orp. roo to my Black copper marans. I only have 1st gen. chicks with the lavender on their under body. Hoping to have Lavender Marans. It'll probably take a couple more generations of breeding to perfect them. Also, does anyone have a young Jubilee Orp. cockerel around 5 mo. for sale? I have 2 pullets and no roo. to raise more chicks.

    Welcome to BYC. Do a forum search. I believe there are several orpington threads. Perhaps someone there can help you locate a rooster.
