    Oh are they beautiful, can I ask the breeding background to get the color. I have some knowledge since I ordered Blue Orphs from the hatchery and ended up with splash and black.

    Thanks so much for all your nice comments. I am excited to see these color varieties progress and will post pics as they grow. The lavenders were a long time in the making, so it is nice to finally be at this 5th generation and see the results. These should turn out really nice. The buff mottled is only on 3rd generation, but they are so sweet, just like my buff orps. I can't wait to see them when they're grown up.

    Thanks so much! I'm thrilled that others enjoy them like I do. That's what makes it all worthwhile.
