Someone left these chickens on my property, so I adopted them. Anyone know what breed they are?
and it was nice of you to kake care of them.
Not sure what breed but the color is lavender or self blue ,and a splash?
Welcome to BYC I see you found the Breed/Gender section I'm not sure what they are, but they are beautiful!
They look kinda like my lavender orpingtons. If so, goody for you. They are still kinda rare as most hatcheries or feedstores don't have them yet and you have to get eggs or chicks from a breeder.
flgardengirl, that's a beautiful pic!
Thank you so much for the quick reply!
They look like orpingtons as someone already mentioned. whoever dumped them isn't too bright, but congrats
Thanks sumi ! There is actually a little story that goes along with that picture. You can read it here lol. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/721698/lavender-orpington-thread/630
Greetings from Texas! And congratulations on your adoptions!
don't want to rain on your parade but, I am always suspicious of people dumping chickens, dogs, cats, etc. Sometimes their gift comes with parasites, contagious diseases etc.
Please quarantine them away from your flock for a month or so to be sure they are okay. They do look like Lavender orps and could have been sold easily - so again I wonder what the" catch" is.
Maybe someone chicken napped them and then panicked about being caught- so passed them on to you.
