He look's pretty nice. It's hard to find blacks that didn't come from Warren. I guess I have had them 25 years or so. I know it's been a long time. I have only gotten males from Warren and one time I did a black rock male and bred it out. With the black rock offspring and the project white from Vern is where the cuckoo orp bantams sprouted.
I also have the whites carrying cuckoo. Also have whites from Tom that he got from Vern that are not carrying cuckoo. I only want the best birds. I also want to thank Julie again for the large fowl English black cockerel she sold me.
Don, my Buff's came from Doug Akers. I am really enjoying them. I look forward to showing my Orpingtons down here in the South. There doesn't seem to be a lot of Large Fowl down here in the deep South and especially Orpingtons but I hope to change that a little in the next few years. Julie seems to have done a good job spreading the blacks and blues down here so maybe I can do the same with the Buff's. I would love to see some great Orpington classes down here in our Southern shows.
