Forgive my chicken ignorance, is there any difference other than color between these and buff orpingtons?
Too bad I'm on the other end of the state (Washington co.) otherwise I'd love one! They are so beautiful.
Ashley, I would be interested in 2! We just lost our Heather to a hawk. This week we are installing a 50'x50' net to enclose the pasture. I have eggs getting ready to pip and hatch this weekend! I could possibly trade with you for an EE, CL, OE, depending on what hatches.
From what I've seen, these arent as big as the english orps.
Greenfeathers, Hi! This photo is of them at about 5 months. They grew more to about 8 lbs. My lavender had a fluffier butt than my other buff one. Both both were super friendly, really fluffy, good large egg layers and had good meat on them (as I saw after the hawk killed Heather). Pretty smart as well.
Ashley, I will still take 2 and hope one is a hen as my dd really is missing her "Heather". I have only 4 eggs for CL in lockdown but do have Ameracaunas, EE, and OE also in lockdown. Not sure how many really are viable as I only candled once. But will know by Tuesday! So we can talk. I will p.m. you. You could also get chicks or eggs from where I do. It would be a 2 hour drive but they have wonderful show quality poultry. They also can ship eggs or chicks. I don't think I would want to ship if I were that close to them! They do better not shipped.
