    Here are the latest results- they are 10 months old now. I am trying to breed for more "basketball" looking orpingtons. I love my roo-he is getting territorial though, but does a great job!!. I have a 4 month old roo off of these- I am going to try him over something, but havent decided what yet. I am hatching some eggs as I type- I will post pics when they finish!! YAY!

    That is where my rooster and my first pullet came from (Hinkjc)- these are 3rd generations from them - I love having lavender chickens, people around here are so amazed by them.
