    This thread is to post pictures and discuss the beautiful English Orps. Please, no discussion on APA standards, auctions, etc. We just want to see pictures and talk about this beautiful eye candy.

    Winston and Clementine are our English Blue Orpingtons that we imported last year. I took some photos today of their oldest chicks, The O's (Olympia and Octavia), Hagrid, Rumples, and Bluebell, and thought I would share.

    Bluebell - she is such a pretty little girl

    Please do post them Sarah - your little buff chicks were just beautiful. Would love to see how they develop as they get older.

    Here are a couple of pictures I took today of the youngest batch of W&C chicks and the little splash chick that hatched today.

    Thought I'd post a few photos of Winston and Clementine, the proud parents. I know I've posted these before, but what the heck [​IMG]

    Hey Joy! [​IMG]. Glad to see a new thread. And, of course, gorgeous pictures. I've got a few new ones of my Joy Orps. I'll post them soon.

    Here are some pictures of my three pullets from Joy...I hatched two black and one blue. They are the most uncooperative birds I've ever tried to get pictures of!!

    Her lacing isn't really that white in the center. It was getting too dark to get decent pictures.

    This thread is really giving me English Orp fever. If they are as sweet as my hatchery buffs, I am in big trouble! LOL
