    Congrats on the vows... hope you had a fantastic honeymoon...

    Well here is a pic of my buff orps just a couple days shy of 6 weeks... I have all hens... no roos... I would venture to say you have yourself a roo there from the details you gave... but I am no exspert.

    This is my daughter Jesse and just a few of her friends ... they were all attacking her and I just had to grab the camera and start taking pictures... the look on her face is priceless LOL she just was not really in the mood for pictures. [​IMG]

    Hello Andy,

    I've got just the thing you want, one male one female 7 weeks (I think) They're currently asleep on the top rung of the clothes horse, but I'll try and get a pic tomorrow, either here or I'll send an e-mail!

    Nice to have you back! Shame about the orp - I've got 4 to get rid of!! [​IMG]

    Cheers Chrisssie

    They were hatched 27th June. Both are starting to get the gold feathering. They both have huge eyes compared with the rest!

    These are my first posted pics - it took me ages but I got there at last!! [​IMG]
