    Here are pictures of my first orpington hatch. I ended up with 2 from BamaChicken. They are an awesome shade of gray - kind of a blue gray - aboslutely beautiful. The picture doesn't do them justice. They hatched out of the eggs marked S - splash

    The other 4 I got off of eBay and all look pretty much like this. Two of them are absolute tanks.
