    Looks like about 4-6 roos (Can't tell if some are pictured twice) and the rest hens. They're pretty! [​IMG]

    Well the 2 in the first pic, the all white one and the all black one didn't look like an orpington to me~ I think it's just the way the feathers looked in the photo or maybe I should stop drinking [​IMG] scolling down I can see them better. LoL (JK) I looked up the splash orpington's and they do look like that! Haha my bad!! [​IMG] If you want any more of my guesses I thought 2 looked rooish! [​IMG]

    i've read so many of what breed are these? where people think they bought type A, and learn they have EE's

    could be that they're not orps, but i'm hoping they are.

    thanks for your help.
