    Can anyone recommend a great show bird??? My buff orpington won 2 first places last year!!!! The problem is buff orpingtons are only one color, but don't get my wrong they're great birds. I'm hoping for more of a majestic looking bird!!!! Please recommend some amazing show birds!!! [​IMG]

    did you know that Orpingtons come in some gorgeous colors like, Chocolate and Lavender? You can also get bantam orps. They don't all have to be buff. I'm not sure if easter eggers can be shown or not because they are a mix. Even in pure breeds some breed standards only allow certain colors , etc to be exhibited. I'm sure others responding will know more than I.
