Quote:I'd say if she has 12 lbs hens, she needs to get a nice type Black Orpington purebred male to take to them. And wouldn't surprise me at all she gets solid color babies. She does have a really nice typey Black Orp male with them now one that I raised from Bamachickens, Charlie. He had a lot of red leakage in his neck so I asked her if she would take him and put over those hens and I will be hatching the eggs a little later. I didn't want to get rid of the rooster because he's so typey so took him to her place to see if the red will eventually leave when he molts another time or 2. This boy is only about 7 months old in that photo.
