    Just thought I'd share these pix of my buff orp/sumatra chicks. Their feathers are looking like wild turkeys. There's also a blue sumatra chick in there and a strange australorp/sumatra with a crooked toe. And then my one ameracauna who I call forty since she's my 40th pet and she cost me $40. (dz eggs from ebay..she's it).

    I was confused by the "brown orp" part of your title, then I see you have a cross. They're a beautiful rich shade of brown!

    They have brown legs as well. I did'nt expect anything so pretty and so different from the parents. Do you think they'll remain brown or change to buff orp or sumatra colors?
     
  7. I love their color!
