    My greys will all be splashed with black - so make sure that is what you want .... Again - I'll post pictures later ... before you guys get locked in for sure :)

    They will also lay blue eggs - I am not happy with the shade - but everyone else says "oh what nice blue eggs" so I guess I am being very hard on my eggs ....

    Woo-hoo! !! I picked Bob up tonight! !! He's a lavender orpington and oh is he big... Standing next to my spitzhauben boys he almost doubles their size. He's a sweet boy though. Tonight he is in isolation as a precaution for morning. I don't want tiny Spitz or Golden Boy kicking his butt, he's still a baby. I will get pics tomorrow of him playing with everyone.

    So today was my first bloody pullet today. Somehow her wattle got ripped just the tiniest bit. Oh my word talk about a lot of blood!!!! Poor baby went from white to red. A tepid cleaning with some water then a glop of triple antibiotic ointment and she was fine. She looks so yucky though. I wish it was warmer I would clean her chest up.

    Genetics question, hope you don't mind. :) I have a handsome and huge orpington boy that I might cross to my big beautiful astrolorp girls. Any clue what I might get. I'm hoping for big, good laying and pretty eggs. No spacific traits just healthy.

    [​IMG] Bob's first encounter with Golden Boy. Went very well Bob picked up very fast that he is the new kid. Golden Boy was very nice about asserting his dominance over Bob, he simply turned and kicked mass amounts of bedding at him and one big crow. Bob said "YES SIR GOT IT!!!" and hid behind an astrolorp.

    So long as they are healthy and good sized I will be happy. Both breeds are big.
