    Edited: I have no idea why the cockeral photo is coming up sideways. I rotated it and it comes up correctly in photobucket, but for some reason, isn't coming up right when I post the link.

    Finally got a few updated pictures of my gorgeous boy Tuffy. He is a bantam to boot. He is such a little chunk! [​IMG] I have him over my black hens, want to see what I get in the way of blues. I also took a decent picture of my black bantam who is with my little blue hen. They are both really good boys. [​IMG]

    Here is a picture of my 6 week old lavenders. She is such a dirty little girl. [​IMG] I have one pullet and one cockerel at this age, they were out playing with some buff rock babies today enjoying some afternoon sun.

    Quote:Myself, I love the look of the English Orps. I much prefer their type to that of our American type. But I'm also a Cochin lover, so.......Just personal preference, I guess.

    Alot of UK breders based their look on Cochins, and some of US American breeders bred in Rock to our Orpingtons. I prefer a mix of the two. The size of APA style with the fluff and roundness of the UK. Either way their all beautiful birds.

    I agree, both are attractive birds.

    Same thing happened with australorps someone added more leghorn and a pinch of RIR in US a long time ago . they were thinking more of setting egg laying records than standard back then as three australorp hens set world egg laying records. bit of a problem today but interesting how different thought process for different times.
