    We had a great rare breeds showcase today in Florida, and there happened to be a pen of beautiful English Orpingtons for sale... I told myself I'd only go home with some Isabel chicks I had pre-arranged to pick, but when I saw two in particular I fell in *love*. There were six in total, and I couldn't bear to only buy a pair, so.... I brought all of them home. :p



    These two are my stand-out favorites;
