I went to go visit with some relatives I haven't seen since I was a kid..Long story short..my parents divorced and I lost my dad's side of family when he left..then my dad came back and found me in 2009..we have been doing stuff together just about every weekend..now back to these relatives..Cousin's are my dad's sister kids..
My cousin Kitty and I have Orpingtons..she has the Lemon Cuckoo Double Barred kind..some of her females are barred too.I was able to get 2 rooster and 8 pullets..one of the roo is going to a new home soon...she also gave me 1 rooster and 2 pullets to her LAVENDAR Orpingtons- had to tell my little heart to calmed down..so I have 2 more kinds of Orpingtons now...along with my Blue,Black and splash orps..

Here is a pic of them together as I got them from her..Some of the older chicks are going thru feather molting..

We have babies here today! The eggs were a communal nest - first a little bantum sat on them and then this Barred Rock. Three so far w/ 4 more eggs.

I have one of everything I think lol

Two bantum Ca Grey, a few Marans, Barred Rock, White Rock, Black Australorp.

Two roo's - white bantum cochin & a mix Jersey Giant & (? I can't recall).

I need to move the chicks to a nesting box where they can get food & water but mom gets agitated if they start peeping. But the first was born yesterday so I don't want to wait 'til the morning.
