    I was looking at auctions for lavender/isabel/gold laced orpington eggs today and the incomplete golden laced orps from this cross look a lot like a hen I have. I got her in February from someone as an adult, didn't even ask what she was. Just assumed she was a funky colored BSL or Orp mix. But after looking at the other ones I'm wondering if she is a project orp? Any thoughts?
    This is Lolli.

    I have a chick, who is only like 3 months old, so I am sure she will change when she moults, but she looks like she will look very much like your lovely hen. My little lady is a black orp roo and a buff orp hen. She is super cute. Hard to tell really, but she is gorgeous!

    Lolli is beautiful! What is a "project orp"?

    I have a little guy - black and buff orp mix. Here he is at 6 weeks old. I assume he is a roo based on the comb?
