    He wasn't very photogentic tonight but it may have something to do with waking him up to take a picture. lol

    Now this is not the same guy.He was hatched from JAB's egg's.She has a big Blue Orp roo but no hen's.I think it must be a cross from him and her Black Australorp hen.

    This is a black pullet from her that looks like a Black Orp but is probably from the same cross.

    Yep, I do believe we have a George here, Marlon. Are you really going to call him George, LOL? He's a nice color. How old is he now-same age as the others in the pics?

    If you want to try them again when the weather cools down, I should be able to get you more at one time then-Delilah, my black pullet, is laying now.

    Julie, your Blue Boy and his son, Suede, sure produce some nice kids, dont they? Marlon, you just let me know when you're ready after August when the weather starts to cool down. You need more than just one Suedelette!

    I'll do it Cynthia.I couldn't get him to stand up very well so I'm going to try and get him in a better stance.

    Quote:I'm not sure if I want to call him that but I was going to call "him" Georgia if "he " was a girl.If I can come up with something that fit's him better I'll change it.
