This post is mostly for my friend and chicken breeding partner Cindy, to see how the Buff Orpington babies are progressing.
Trouble was hatched Feb 27 and I'm hoping she's a she.

Nosey had to jump up and check out the babies as I was looking at them.

I have two chicks that were hatched March 6. Again looks like maybe a pair.
Besides the Buff Orpingtons I have other breeds of chickens, Love the look of the Black Copper Marans which lay very dark brown eggs. Debating over keeping either of these two boys. I have lots of younger boys growing out, although none of the bloodline that this first male has. I like his balance and coloring. His comb is a little big but not too awful, his wattles could be smaller. I wouldn't hesitate to keep him except one of his eyes is funny and I don't know if he'll out grow it.

Oops didn't get a good shot of the slightly younger fellow. But I'm pretty sure he's going to go away any way because he has too much red on his chest instead of it being nice and black. There are more chic pics to sort through but I"ll save them for later. Right now I need to go do chores.
