Chick Available (June 4th Hatch):
9 lav orps
10 choc cuckoo orps
2 black orps
The parents are great quality & very rare purebreds, not from hatchery stock. Imported English bloodlines. Extremely friendly & docile with impressive size, shape, & color. The chicks were hatched as part of a 4-H poultry science project, and the money from chick sales goes to cover the project expenses. Unless noted, the chicks are being sold straight run. Because chicks are social & require a constant companion, min of 2 chicks must be purchased.
ORPINGTONS are big, friendly dual-purpose birds originally developed in the UK. They're friendly and cold-hardy due to their fluffy plumage. The Orpington is a backyard favorite because of their desire to be handled and docile nature. We have the imported English bloodlines that have a larger appearance than the American variety and are hard to find in the US. The Lavenders and Chocolate Cuckoos are very rare even among other English Orpingtons. The Black Orps have a magnificent metallic green (or violet) shine when in the sunlight. They still tend to be my favorites.
