    Hi there [​IMG] , I was just wondering if anyone has any egg-laying Pheonix and/or Orpington hens (or any pictures). Not much turns up when I try on google. I'm just curious because I may be purchasing some very soon. THANKS [​IMG]

    Use the search function here and there are lots of threads on both. You can also go to feathersite.com for pics of both breeds.

    Feathersite.com is definitely your best bet for photos. Where are you located? Just wondering who's got Orps and Phoenix [​IMG]

    If you want egg size, you'd go with Orpingtons, unless you just get both breeds. Phoenix lay fairly small eggs and Orps lay large up to jumbo. And Feathersite is a great tool.
