    ya know cyn I may just end upbreeding orps. I am getting a dozen eggs from julie the same week I am getting yours so I am hoping for a Blue, black, or splash cockerel from one of ya'lls eggs then hopefully I'll have a hen in each color. But if that doesn't workout I want to have a back up breed to fall back on.

    I am leaning towards the Delewares, I know you had a bad experience with them but I want to get some and breed niceness into them. Besides the roos are GORGIOUS! lol : )

    My vote goes for anything longtail. [​IMG] Or La Fleche.
    Now if someone in the US could some up with a Lavender Cuckoo Orp that this lady has....I think they'd have no problem selling them. [​IMG] <hint hint>

    Corey, I think my experience wasn't the norm with the Delawares and I agree, the roosters are beautiful!
