    I have an Orpington (Buff) and her name is Waffles. She is the sweetest thing ever! Tolerates everything too! She was by far the best showmanship bird I've ever had. I "trained" her in the summer by walking up our 1/4 mile driveway down and back up again while carrying her. She was the friendliest to begin with but I made sure that I was going to have an exceptional showmanship bird. I did wow my peers w her too! I was able to flip her onto her back in my lap and she would fall asleep with her feet sticking in the air and her wings spread out. I will post some pictures o her when I am able but she is a real sweetie.[​IMG]

    Aww she sounds lovely! They're so friendly! I show mine so I'll give that a try, thanks for the tip! This is Martha, my Buff Orpington. She has a wonderful nature, so sweet!
