    This is my Black Orpington, she is about 10 weeks old.
    I don't know much about the breed but she seems typie (how do you spell that anyway??) to me.
    What do you think?? Please be honest as this is how I will learn. If there is something lacking let me know.

    Looks alright to me. Real "chickeny."
    Id say black Orp and they are really great birds.

    Quote:LOL, Nope she is definitely a Black Orp, I got 10 from Gordie and none have feathers on their feet. [​IMG]
    Guess I better mow the grass. [​IMG]

    She looks really pretty to me. Black shiney feathers, full breast, short back, lots of fluff, black feet and beak. Lovely girl. Gordie breeds some real beauties.

    She is pretty. We have Buff's and I cant wait for them to feather out more.

    Definitely not a Cochin. You should see the feathers on my girl! and ya would, if my camera was working:barnie
