Nice picks! the pigeon list, I have racers, lahores, indian fantails, oriental frills, and I have had nuns. All wonderful breeds in their own way.

As for chickens, I just got a big friendly Orpington roo. His name is Clyde. They make great pets. Just big ole loveable birds. I had a Leghorn roo once as well, and RIR's used to be one of the main breeds roaming around here. My last one passed away last year :(
Which ones I want...is another story :p There's a LOT of breeds I wish I could have. Araucanas, Easter Eggers, Welsummers, French Marans, Penedesencas, and Barnevelders would make a whole range of colored eggs. I'd like to have more Polish chickens, since I only have one rooster. And then my Houdan hen will be lonely....so she'd need some friends. Heck, why don't we throw in some Sultans and I'll have a flock of fancy hairdo'd birds! :p LOL.

But on a more serious note, I'm on a waiting list for lemon blue standard cochin hatching eggs this fall. And soon I should be getting a variety of eggs, including more Orpingtons. Soooo, next year I'm going to work on making some Lemon Blue Orpingtons. It'll be neat. Since I can't play with the colors in my pigeons, I'm calming my color craze with chickens :p

oooo. I hope you put up pictures of your Lemon Blue Orpingtons when they are all ready. Maybe you could do like a baby book and take pictures of the moms and dad(s) and then the babbies from egg to hatching and through to adulthood and post them on pigeon talk's pet bird board.

I'd like to have some Easter Eggers too. I'm sure that the unusual color of eggs would make them good sellers if only for novelty. I've also thought I should start "blowing out" some of the turkey and chicken eggs around here so I can paint and sell them. I did see one board where someone was doing that with tiny pigeon eggs, but I don't even know if my one pigeon is a boy or girl yet. lol. Mac is only about a month and a couple weeks old.

There is a wealth of info and great pics about batik and pysanky eggs here:
