How do folks? I have used this forum in the past, not as a member but for research. Since I finally got my "starters" I decided to stick around. I purchased 8 of the prettiest Lavendar orpingtons from a local grower toady and am looking forward to getting them up and running. Also hope to become a familiar "face" in the threads as I learn.

Hopefully here is a horrible photo or the lil'uns. Only 2 days old.

Welcome to BYC!

AWWW......your babies are adorable! Love those Lavender Orps!!

Enjoy your new babies and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Welcome to our flock!
Thanks a bunch ya'll. I saw them and new I had to have them,I was going to order them from an online hatchery,but happened to see a lady local on craigslist that had imported some. I was able to get the 8 I have this time, and after seeing her 6 mnth old monster roo's asked about the next hatching...lol. Also she has a large hatching of buff orps that I am going to partake of some. But now I have to build a bigger coop and run. :(

Trust me there will be plenty of questions.

Thought I would do a little update. The bottom one who I think is a roo, is Speck...lol' adventurous soul. Anyhow, right at 2 weeks old and gorgeous. Out of 8 biddies I think only 3 are tips.might be wrong, but they have a more predominant comb than the others. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
