    I agree, what she is is gorgeous! She looks like a cross, but one worth trying to copy.

    [​IMG] Thank you! Her name is Jessica, but we call her the glamor queen! I just love her.

    I went to pick up 2 Buff Orpintons from a CL ad, and I saw her running around in the sale pen...I had to have her!

    The seller had a clutch of her babies, but they looked nothing at all like her, they looked like she had got some one on one time with a Polish roo [​IMG]

    i'd take a blue rooster.. (maybe something that has that look.. perhaps a Black Australorp. or blue one... or some other kind of breed that looks like that). Then you take the babies... and breed back to her.. will be 3/4th her.. and should be her color.. if not do it again..

    Is it my imagination--or wishful thinking--but does her comb appear to be cup-shaped?
