    Suede is one year and nine months old now. He's just finishing up his molt so the brassy feathers are mostly gone and here's the big guy today.

    He is just stunning. [​IMG] I have a 100 foot old cow barn, behind our main barn that stores some equipment. I keep gazing at it thiking I could add some more breeds/colors. I may just have to add myself to your waiting list.[​IMG]

    I feel privileged to have Blue Orpingtons and although Suede may not be the absolute perfect example of the breed, he has produced some really great kids, even show-winning. And you cant beat this guy for being calm and even-tempered. I'll get new pics of Skye when she regrows her beautiful feathers.

    Yes, it's why Suede cant be my main flock rooster, his massive size. He'd crush some of my ladies.
