    It looks like I'm going to end up with 3 roos and 1 hen out of what is left of my lavender orpington hatch. [​IMG] I had such high hopes for the 9 original babies, but a hungry fox left me with only 4.

    How do I decide which rooster to keep as I will only be keeping one. Any suggestions on what to look for breed standard wise?

    Here are pics at almost 2 months old. They started hatching May 1
