    She sure doesn't look like one! Crazy beard and ear muffs, plus some speckles...what do you all think? What could she be? She's about 5 months old. Thanks!!

    Totality lost it.
    Definant Orloff! Gorgeous and rare birds- secretly, I think you got the better deal- Orloffs are WAY more exotic and special (but yes I still love my Sussexs) than any common Sussex!

    OH WOW....what a find, I want a Russian Orloff so bad but man they don't come cheap. xD You certainly got one heck of a deal with her. I totally envy you and what a beautiful bird she is on top of that. Hope my ordergets messed up and I get an Orloff but unlikely since the hatchery I am buying from doesn't even breed them T.T One can dream right?
