Mottled/Spangled Orpingtons - Page 10

post #91 of 253

Just joined this thread.  I am expecting my spangled orps this week.  Literally took out a loan to purchase them... I would not recommend doing it if you value your sanity. Pretty sure I have an addiction.. (poor dh)  I'm not currently planning on breeding any project colors from them since I am just not that adventurous and the mottled look is plenty beautiful to satisfy my crazy chicken fetish.  Now the very long waiting game begins.....

There isnt anyone who sells %100 English Imported Spangled eggs or chicks, but from time to time you can find a auction for a breeding pair of juveniles around 8 weeks old. They have been consistently been selling for around $1500. Marc Sacre is the Original Importer of this variety (%100 English Imported). 

 

Im sure they will become more available once the handful of breeders that have them now begin to recieve fertile eggs from their breeding pairs.

It's because the listing said Mottle/Spangle not Mottled, so if you are searching Mottled it won't hit with a match. Make sure you search with Mottle when looking.
