Congrats, Chris! I remember my very first baby hatched from my own birds. Its a real milestone.

Its really exciting. I cant wait to actually take these little one to a show. Even though it will probably be not till next winter.
Im going really nuts with these Orpingtons I have 40 More eggs in the Sportsman. I do have ALOT of people that live around me interested mainly for egg laying. They just cant get over the size and blue color we all love.​

Gurl, I'd be dangerous with a Sportsman. Well, what am I saying. My neighbors and friends have one and every extra egg on this place has been incubating in it. I sent 48 Orp eggs down their to hopefully get those 15 chicks shipped to you on the 21st. Plus RIR's and silkies. Just don't have many silkie eggs right now. I am taking another doz Buff O's down their this evening.

Your chicks are very cute and healthy looking. Just one comment on the Orps - I'm thinking that Buff Orps (I don't know about Blue) typically have white-ish pink legs. Maybe I'm wrong?

Your right on the buffs. The legs turn out white. Eyes gold. On the Splash Orps I always whitish gray legs. On the blues I get slatey blue.

I have my sportsman full to the brink lol. My husband says if I keep it that way he will sell it. He is saying it jokingly of course. I cant wait to get those little chicks Julie
The Orp hens I have are laying up a storm and I have been setting every egg with great fertility. I've been telling them to keep it up so I can send you a bunch.

You still want white skin and legs on the Orps. Blues/blacks/splash will ahve a slate shank instead of white.
