Muave Orpington chickens

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been told by someone that muave color English Orpingtons are kind of hard to come by? I am fairly new to having chickens so I don't really know. My wife and I just hatched 18 chicks from our flock and have a few chicks that are a light gray color. We are getting our son into 4-h soon and we are curious what breed of chicken would be best for him to raise and show? We currently have Easter eggers, English Orpingtons, Cochins, and a few speckled Sussex. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I'm not sure what mauve Orps would look like.   I wonder if you mean lavender?    EE's are not a true breed, so I don't know if they can be shown.  I think a showy, docile breed would be best to start with. The only show experience I have had, was with dogs many years ago.  Hopefully others  will reply to your post and give you good fundamental information.

 

The Learning Center would be a great place to start.

Hi and welcome to BYC. Alas, I cannot really offer any advice on breeds (where i live all our chickens are mutts). I'm sure further searching and looking at the Breeds section should help you out. You could even just type "docile breeds" in the search box and see what pops up.

 

All the best
