The are photos of my Orpingtons I hatched from various eggs from Cyn, Julie, Chris and a couple of folks not from BYC. The splash cockeral in this pen if from Chris's eggs. I am not too pleased with his comb but of the 3 splash cockerals i had to choose from he was the better choice for now. I do have a few other splashes growing out and maybe in the future I will swap him out for a specimen with a better comb. However, until recently, he was the lowest roo in the pecking order from all the cockerals I hatched. I have noticed over the years the subservient roos don't develop a comb and wattles the same way the dominant cockerals do. I think I will see some big physical changes in him over the next few months as his male hormones rise and he understands he is the lead roo in this pen. This splash girl in the middle is from Cyn's Suede and Velvet. The 2 dark hens - easily mistaken by some folks as black but really very dark blue is from Julie's stock. One is from an egg fertilized by her mottled roo, Bama. The blue girls in this pen have been laying sporadically for just over a week now. I am very pleased with this pen of pullets.
