    My chickies were delivered today! I got 4 orpingtons and a speckled Sussex. Bought them as pullets from 8-10 weeks, although the orpingtons seem a little younger as they still have fuzz.
    This is the Speckled Sussex.[​IMG]

    Full body shots would be ideal. I'd watch the lavender orp #2, but they all look like pullets to me.

    Basskids the one you say may be black, is a blue I'm sure...Her head is just black but the rest of her is the blue. Not sure about the darker lavender. All I know is they only had one blue left
