    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.
