I cannot wait for some of my Tuff babies to grow up look like those above
Here's some updated pics of my Orps from gumpsgirl. They are 8 weeks old here.
And my blue girl, that I lost to a predator with 2 splash pullets.
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! 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.
Here is a picture of my 6 week old lavenders. She is such a dirty little girl. I have one pullet and one cockerel at this age, they were out playing with some buff rock babies today enjoying some afternoon sun.
here is my blue orp with 9 keets, 1 poult, and 2 orp chicks
I know I have posted his pic previously but he is growing up and such a handsome sweet boy....even though he attacks dogs and chases lawn tractors. hehehe This is Thor, Son of Suede 9 months old and 11.5+ lbs
He comes running when mama calls him
My blacks from hinkjc are HATCHING one out so far!!!!!
Nava talk about a blended family too cute
These are my four buff orpingtons and two faverolles,my question is are some buffs that red color?
Quote:This is a blury pic of the Buff Orpington artists rendering. But is said to have the ideal color to look to get out of your Buffs.
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.
