    [​IMG] That is one big chicken! I plan on getting some new pics of my black orp cockerel out of speckledhen's Suede on here later today. He is 16 weeks old and as big as my ameraucana hen. I can't believe how big these orps are getting.

    How old is the black orp roo you gave her? He looks a lot like the one I have, just has a better developed comb and wattles.

    Quote:He's about 6 months old and is atleast 10 pounds. The pictures doesn't really do him justice though, this boy is HUGE. Does yours have a werewold type crow too? It's the funniest thing ever [​IMG]

    Mine hasn't crowed yet but I'm sure as soon as he does I'll have to separate him from my sf roo. He just tries to stay out of the way of the hens at the moment. It won't be long before he is as big as my speckled sussex roo and maybe even bigger. Right now he is only about 4 months old.
