    Read this CAREFULLY

    Eggs will ship on Wednesday the 22nd. Paypal Only please.
    I have 8 Brown,Bronze,Fudge,Coffee,Chocolate or Whatever YOU want to call them... Eggs.
    These are Large Fowl Orpington eggs out of my 3 Pure Breed,100% Orpington hens that are Brown colored. The roo for these 8 eggs is a Lavender Project Orpington. So technically the chicks will hatch out as splits to lavender.
    These hens were born brown, they molt brown and grow back brown feathers. At NO point are, were or will these 3 hens be Black feathered birds.
    I make absolutely NO claim that these are "Chocolate" Orpington`s.
    PM me with any questions you have.
    Chicks below were hatched out December14th from these same birds/eggs

    Rio, Yes they are brown, no clue if they are carrying the "choc." gene. As you can see from the pics, the birds are a dull dark brown, not quite shiny,reddish like the bantam chocolates on the UK sites.

    Osu, I don`t have any adult pics of good feather now on my pc.
