    First, one of the Orps I picked up from speckledhen early in the month...

    Plus 2 new additions...if they turn out dark blue they stay with me, if they are black (which I think they are), they go home with scbatz33

    Our little duckie a solo hatch. We lost duckie at not quite 2 weeks old. But duckie was very much loved in its short life...it even went to the drive-in movie

    Great pictures! Sorry you lost little duckie, but happy you had her for awhile anyway. Those Porcelain d'uccles really are pretty. I love the mohawk! I have a few looking like that, too! Baize ..... is a girl you know, right? Most of all I love the way Lancelot gives hugs! So cute! [​IMG]

    I am almost positive Baize is a girl...LOL but Cyn told me he was a he...so Sarah is taking her chances...if it is a girl...that is good too. LOL


    Lancelot is a sweetie...hard not to be around here. All that forced affection they get. LOL

    Well, Baize looks girlish to me! I don't see any pointy saddle feathers.

    Yup and Baize and Lancelot are only about 2 weeks apart in age and look at the comb difference....although Ebony has NO comb whatsoever and she is Baize' sister so I dunno. I know Thor's comb was prominent at 5 weeks old....so [​IMG]

    naaaa Baize stays with Sarah. She only has three layers right now so Baize will serve her well no matter what gender.

    OMGoodness! I'm in love with Lancelot! What a little lover bug!! [​IMG] [​IMG] Just look at the way he snuggles up! That's a keeper right there! Especially if he continues to be a cuddle up sort of guy when he gets older. Is he being groomed to be Thor's stand in LadyHawk? Nobody could ever take the place of Thor, we all know that for certain. But maybe he [Lancelot] can lessen the empty places? I hope he continues to be the lover he appears to be in the pictures LH! You deserve another sweetie pie boy! [​IMG]

    ETA: Love all the pictures by the way! Keep 'em coming!! [​IMG] Keep 'em coming!!! [​IMG] You have several weeks of picture posting to catch up on ya know! [​IMG]

    If none of these babies are blue boys, then Lancelot will be the new flock leader...if one of the Suede babies is a blue boy, then it will be a toss up....personality, and job performance shall dictate the flock leader in that event. LOL

    But in any event...Severus is NOT going to be in charge of my girls...he cannot do the job. I may keep him in with the layers but that will be all...and if I have an extra orp boy that is better at the job but not taking Thor's job...Severus will be rehomed.
