Hi,

I saw a couple of Tolbunt Orpingtons here in South Africa yesterday, lacing looks good and mottling shows well.

Will go back to Mynhardt who is the breeder to take photos...

How did the one in your last photo grow up, mottling looks good, still need better lacing but it is very possible it grew into better lacing?

As I'm not an administrator & can't edit other members posts to fix broken photobucket images, I'll just do a few quotes on early Kimera's posts & show the thumbnail images that way...

Our planned approach is to mirror the steps outlined in Sigrid van Dort's articles on the subject:

We asked Sigi to imagine and provide a rendering of what a tolbunt Orpington might look like, and she masterfully painted this image:



We have already produced about 40 chicks from the gold laced x jubilee cross. When they're about eight months old we intend to post pictures of many of the juvenile birds on this site and seek your advice on which birds to carry forward as breeders into the next generation of the Tolbunt Orp project.

Should be an interesting trip together! Comments are always welcome.

You can see some black lacing in the neck area but it appears to me the black takes on a more mottled pattern in the body of the bird. Your comments are welcome.
