Is this normal or are they mix ?
Mine is just curiosity, since I don't care of showing, I just like to have beautiful and tame chickens.
blue orps come in 3 basic colors. Black, silver and splash. Splash is dirty white with black splashes throughout. The silver can have black necklines ad silver body.
These are the ones in question. I bought them as Blue Orpingtons. I love them no matter, and not breeding, we have them as pets for eggs. But I love the orps. However I was told by a woman (not here on BYC) that "Those are no Blue Orpington's" she did not like my chickens lol. So I am just curious??
Yes, these are definitely blue orpingtons. The slate gray to black shanks are a dead give away. Give them time to fully develop.
Excuse me! Do you want more specifics? I know very well the different shades of blue, I have raised them since they were introduced.
