    What a looker, Sandy! [​IMG] The one I have is at such an awkward stage, everything about him looks loose and disjointed when he runs, LOL. And the other day, I saw tons of black feathers in their pen. When trying to see where the heck they all came from I saw that his brother had plucked almost all of his hackle feathers because, apparently, he had gotten something on them. Now he really looks odd! But that one is humongous. His feet are almost as big as Suede's now,even at just 16 weeks old! How much does your guy weigh, do you know?

    Did you hatch him from your eggs? I can't wait until I've got my own orp eggs to hatch!!

    Wow! Sandy, you've been keeping secrets. That is one fine looking speciman. I don't suppose you'd be willing to trade him for a sack of rice and a sack of crawfish, hugh? [​IMG]

    Hmm ....100 sacks of crawdads and rice will not work!!...

    Katy, I hatched him from Julies birds, can not take all the credit!!...

    It has taken forever to get a good pic of him!!
