    We will be hatching every Orpington Bantam egg we do not sell.

    Here are some of our Black Orpington Bantam juveniles hatched November 7, 2011. We also listed two pairs of these on the BYC BSA.

    I think I have one or two of my F2s due next week, and my hen is starting to lay more steadily so I will start setting more [​IMG]. Also have a few other projects that I will be setting eggs for.

    I just love projects! [​IMG]

    Oh, forgot to mention I have my first few whites vital in the bator. [​IMG] I think I have a couple going into LD tonight or the next batch due in a few days. [​IMG]
