    My lavender orpington rooster, Cogburn, mated with my favorite buff hen, Amanda. The eggs are in the incubator and are all developing. Does anyone have pictures of a cross between the two? I'm so excited to see what they might look like!!!

    So I know this was back in 2012, but I really wanted to see the results of this cross!
