June 9 – It appears I may have an actual Blue Orpington this time around!  Feathers are coming in a lovely slatey grey.  The two splash chicks are already getting some color splashes, so that’s exciting as well.  The plan is to build a couple movable coops, so my Blue Orpington dynasty will be protected.  I don’t think Jack will like being moved into a small coop after all his days of wandering, but I think he’ll just have to deal with it.
