    These are pictures of my Golden Laced Orpington project. Very much a work in progress. These are two of the nicest pullets.

    They are looking great! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to getting some of your BBS orps sometime too. I love the look of that splash cockerel. I have one myself and I think they are just great. Best of luck to you with your project. Keep us posted.

    Just wondering, are you using GLW and black orps? How did the males from this cross turn out?

    Great job! I love that so many are working on more colors of orpingtons. Nice splash. What are you breeding for the GL - a black orp ?
