Orpingtons Orpingtons are a large breed of chicken with characteristic round body shapes and fluffy feathers. They are docile and friendly and are good layers of large, light brown eggs.
Current colors available include lavender, blue, black, and splash
The lavender color is a fairly recent development and is rare in the USA though has been bred in the UK for some time. Lavender is a recessive gene (also known as self-blue) and when crossed with black or blue the chicks will carry the lavender gene though will appear black or blue colored (called lavender split).
We have 2 separate groups of Orpingtons available this year *Lavender *Blue, Black, Splash
