Lavender Orpington Chicks




Known for their calm friendly demeanor and egg production!


Orpingtons come in a large variety of colors and patterns.

These past couple of years have seen a steady rise in interest for Lavender and Blues.

They are a large fluffy, friendly hen – they have a profusion of feathers, making them seem much more significant than they are.

They are known to be curious, docile, cuddly, and relatively intelligent, which makes them adorable!

As they are so calm and quiet, they are often lower in the pecking order than the more assertive ladies of your flock.

They get picked on by other hens, so be aware of this and deal with it as needed.

They are said to be good foragers, although they are more likely to hang out near the feeders – being a bit on the lazy side.
