    He's very nice! I wouldn't mind seeing him chasing my hens...

    but sadly, what I know about orpington show styles you can toss in a thimble, and if you shook it, you wouldn't hear a thing.

    was hoping to learn something here. [​IMG]

    Those wattles are huge! [​IMG]

    He looks good enough, he'll probably throw some lovely babies.

    Where did you get him?

    He looks no way enough

    Not sure what this means????

    His tail isn't all the way in & his wattles are a bit bigger than they should be. Type is very nice. Assuming his weight i swithin standard range I think he's a pretty nice bird.​

    Really?

    Where did you get him/who told you that?

    I knew he had to have some UK blood in him.​
