    What are Rainbow Orpingtons you ask??? Read below.

    I have my orpingtons penned together for winter. I have 4 pens that I will collect eggs from.

    Pen 1 - Lavender Roo with 4 lav hens and 2 white hens
    Pen 2 - Black Roo with 2 lav hens and 2 white hens
    Pen 3 - Splash Roo with 2 blue hens,2 white and 2 lavender hen
    Pen 4 - Blue roo with blue hens and splash hens and a black hen

    You will get normal colored chicks ( Lavenders,Blacks,Blues,Splash) as well as some rainbowish chicks.
    My understanding is that the white orps carry the cuckoo gene, so you should hatch out some REALLY cool looking chicks.
    If you just want some Good quality Orpingtons but are not concerned with colors, this is the deal for you.

    My stock comes from Dick Horston, HinkJC Mountain Poultry and TaterChicken stock.
