    Here's what 1 of my roos looked like as a chick:

    Thank you! Very pretty birds [​IMG]

    I see that you're in Michigan. One of the reasons for my wanting to get these particular birds is that I've heard they are cold hardy, and I'll assume that's true as you live in one of the colder states.

    I'm scared that they'll be all DEAD if I order chicks... so this seemed most logical! I won't feel as bad if the eggs don't hatch...lol

    good to know, I will keep my girls for a while to see how they turn out [​IMG] They aren't as typey as the ones I got from Terry, their beaks don't have the hook like they are supposed to....will give them a while though [​IMG]

    Wolfwoman...my Orloffs are very cold hardy. They actually seem to thrive more in the colder months than in the hot heat we've had this week. I had to keep their pens misted to keep them from overheating. They're truly amazing birds, to say the least.

    klf74...definitely hold onto yours for a while. They just get better the older they get. But at a pretty young age (around 8 weeks) you actually can make first culls based on body type. But I wouldn't cull for color until at least a year...they change just about every week. [​IMG]
