    I saw a picture of chocolate silver laced orpington and fell in love with the color immediately. In 2015, I obtained a chocolate rooster and a silver laced hen and started my first step. In 2016, I hatched some chicks from the above pair and keep only the F1 rooster with nice shape and coloring for my next stage as only roosters carry 1 dose of each chocolate, S,and Pg genes whereas the F1 hens only carry 1 dose of chocolate and Pg genes. Now the F1 rooster has finally became mature and I am breeding him back to the silver laced hen. Currently collecting eggs and can't wait to hatching some F2 offsprings. Anyone else is doing the same project? If so, would love to hear how your project is going and share some progress. will update some pictures later

    Thanks. Will do this afternoon. I recently broke my right hand bone and have to wear splint for 4 weeks...so I am a bit slow with everything

    I was using a power drill and got a bit inpatient when it was stuck. I thought I could force it to drill through and that didn't happen, instead it swung back so hard and broke my hand bone. The doctor says it is quite common..so it was all my own fault. Yes, I could use my left hand, but I am a right hand person. Well, just have to deal with it.
