    I'd think you'd have a mutt :p Even sexlinks are mutts.

    Yep, you get MEG! She tends more toward the exhibition Orpington side of the family, being a hefty lady with white legs and she's a sweetie.

    Aw, thanks, Marlon. I tell her every day how beautiful she is. She likes for me to pick her up, but I have to make sure to bend at the knees, LOL.

    Speckled, she is such a pretty bird. How much does she weigh?

    Ginasmarans, Papa looks big but it is hard to get perspective, how big is he?
