    Lavender Orpington pullet? 13 weeks

    Based on personality, and a LOT of viewing other people’s LOs at around this stage…I’m getting a bit more sure she’s a she. She has a ton of broken feathers in her tail area but when I pull them apart they look rounded. Her comb also still looks pink to me and has looked exactly like this no...

    Lavender Orpington Chick - Roo or Pullet?

    I received two lavender orpingtons when they were 2 weeks old and I think they may both be Roos... I would appreciate any feedback! One of the below images is the little chick at 2 weeks and the second is at 3.5 weeks. After reviewing photos of this breed, I think they may have been older than...

    Our Lavenders Made It Safe and Sound

    Our 3 Lavender Orpingtons made it home safe and sound! I ordered from My Pet Chicken, and loved the experience! They were toasty warm with their heat pad and everyone looks healthy! No pasty butt so far. They seem healthier than our older feed store chicks. They looked so cute in their...

    How slow is typical for slow feathering??

    So I know that each bird is different and they feather at their own rate...but how slow is too slow or is there such a thing? I got 4 chicks at the same time that are all within a day of each other age wise. I believe they’re approximately 3.5 weeks old. I got two lavender Orps and two BLRWs...

    Lavender Orpington Feather Question

    My 17-week pullet's tail looks ragged. I do not care about the aesthetics, but want to make sure this is not an issue with diet, parasites or living conditions. As a first time chicken keeper I am grateful for any advice.

    ISO lavender orpingtons

    I am looking for 3 lavender orpington chicks/pullets from show quality stock. I know lavender is not an official variety. I would consider straight runs depending on the drive, price, etc. Considering driving up to 2 hours one way. I am in southeast MO, my zip code is 63755.
