    I will ship 8+ lavender orpington hatching eggs. I try to send a dozen if possible. These are nice quality birds. I also have a pen of 2 50/50 blacks hens with 2 blue roos. The stock is english import stock. If I don't have a full dozen lavenders I can include some of the black/blues. In the test hatch I had over 90% fertility. The en has 6 hens with 3 roos.

    Kiawadix, I'm a bit confused by your posting.

    What is the Split black composed of - Blue and Black? or Lavendar and Black?

    Having a blue/black or even a lav/black rooster over blue hens will not produce Lavendar babies.


    Blue x Black will never equal lavendar

    Lavendar is a distinct gene and will only come when the roo and the hen have either a dominant or recessive gene for it.

    Feel free to pm me and ask me any questions you need about it. Thanks and have a blessed day. Nancy

    I have a pen of only lavenders 6 hens and 3 roos. I purchased 2 50/50 black hens to breed with the lavenders from the same breeder. I wanted more blacks. the breeder has bbs english imports that she got to go with her lavenders. I got 2 chicks they looked black but were blue and are very beautiful. both are roos so to get more blues I put the 2 black 50/50 with the 2 blue roos. I hatched one chick so far but only set 2. I now have 9 set in a friends incubator and last night set 7 in my brinsea 20 incubator. I am trying to get a line of the english imports going. They would be 75% english. I had a king suro incubator and replaced it with a brinsea. I am very impressed with the size and type of my blue roos and my black hens. My lavenders are also very nice.

    I got them from Mary Michaud in Washington. Last year she sold eggs on backyard chicken. I don't know if she did this year she said she was planning on doing a lot of dog showing. She has very nice birds.
