    I have 3 Roo's born Dec 3, 2009----

    Blue/ Lavendar Orpington Roo-- He has 98% white shafts and a few black--think that makes him a slpit --I am not too good with trait stuff. Really sweet handled by my small kids. He is going to be huge. I hatched him and got the eggs from Gabbard Farms.

    Golden Lakenvelder Roo--Super sweet-- Will be really pretty bird. I hatched him and got the eggs from Gabbard Farms.

    Barred Rock Roo--Sweet bird. I hatched him and got the eggs from Gabbard farms.

    Willing to Drive to meet you. I am in central Massachusetts.

    Your lakenvelder looks to be a pullet, if it was a roo his comb and wattles would be red and getting big .
    Just like your orpinton roo.

    I agree! and the black would be more apparent on the neck. Here's a pic of one of mine, 4 weeks:

    Granted, mine has no tail, that's unimportant [​IMG]

    My roos all have had very apparent and pinkening combs by 5 weeks, with some wattle by then. These are easy to sex early.

    The little Orpington roo is totally gorgeous........I'd take him in a heartbeat if I had a way to meet you!! I'd also take the Barred Rock roo......Gabbard Farm has beautiful birds!! I always check their website. I have both a Splash Orp and a Barred Rock pullet who are,as of now, solo. Have a greaty night!

    I would have taken all three! They would all have a flock of hens waiting for them here (except the Barred rock, he'd have a single BEAUTIFUL hen who has just molted [​IMG] she looks SNAZZY!!)

    The Orp would have Three BIG FAT girlies [​IMG] Golden that is [​IMG]

    And I suppose the Lakenvelder, if it were a roo could hang out with my two other roos and the four hens... or if it were a hen, she'd have two men [​IMG]

    Too bad you live far away [​IMG]

    What do buff orps and blue/lav orps make???
