The Lavenders are part of the ongoing "Lavender Project" originating from the HinkJC line. Lavender Orpingtons are still a "project" and need work bringing to full Orprington standards. These are F4's in the project and would be a great foundation for any project or flock. My flock currently consists of lavender and split black hens under a lavender rooster, meaning they can produce both lavenders and blacks carrying the lavender gene from your hatch. This flock is producing a high amount of lavenders and VERY HIGH hatch rates. Both hens are very healthy and laying well. I cannot guarantee hatch rates on eggs due to variables beyond my control, but I am hatching between 80 and 100% at home. If shipping is needed, it will be at the buyers expense. I accept paypal. Thank you!
