    Here are some pics that I took of my Orps. this morning. They are all pullets and are now 12 wks. old. I think they are so sweet and so pretty! It has been so fun to have a chicken walk up to me and be able to bend down to pet them. All of my others have always just done their best to get out of arms length when I do that. Not these! They are super friendly! [​IMG]

    These first two pics are of Miracle, my splash girl.
    This is Raven, my black pullet. I had no idea that the black Orps. had a green iridescent shine to their feathers! She's gorgeous and I'm so glad I kept her. She's a sweetheart! [​IMG]
    The next pics are of my blue girls, Velma and Daphney. Yes, they were named after the characters on Scooby Doo thanks to my little DD. [​IMG]

    Quote:I hatched these babies! I got my eggs from jimmy47. They are turning out to be just lovely, I think! I also have some buff babies that I hatched from Jody, hinkjc. I need to get pics of them and add them.

    Thank you all! [​IMG]

    Nice babies there, I am not surprised because I have 4 of Jimmy47's babies that I hatched 1 black roo, 2 black hens, 1 blue roo. I am so happy with the size of these babies they are huge LOL. Congrats again.

    Looks like the last photo (Daphne?) is only to have gorgous lacing.

    Very nice group of orps, Stacey. I hope you enjoy them for a very long time!

    Psst - Want some more? Call me [​IMG]

    They are awesome, Stacey! One day, one day, maybe I'll have my splash Orp pullet. For now, I'll be happy with my splash Ameraucana.
