I haven't been on since the upgrades. Last year I bred a blue cockerel over two blue hens and one black hen. I got a three black pullets and a black cockerel out of that pen. Here are a couple photos. What do you think?
Thanks Julie. I appreciate the good words. I have never shown any yet, but I'm thinking about it next fall. I would I really like to meet some of you guys. I think the show in Shawnee Oklahoma is pretty big, but I imagine I would probably have to go a little farther east to see you at a show.

They are having the Orpington National in Knoxville 2014. I think in Dec but I may be wrong on the Month. I know Don said but i have forgotten since it is a bit of time from Now. Here is one of my purty Black hens
And a black cock who I made this pic of a month ago before he finished his molt

Thanks zig.. I like a few of them I like. She is not he one I showed this year. I am going to weigh a bunch of them next week when the Sun shines again. I have a young cockerel that is bigger than that particular black. His chest is huge. I am going to put him over some of the girls next week. I just hope I am getting fertile eggs from the cock. I have some in the bator so I should know soon
