    I am interested in the Buff Orpingtons because of their reputation as friendly, but I have an opportunity to get Lavender Orps. Should they be equivalent in personality?

    All chickens are different, even if they are the same breed. But... I do have blue orps and lavender orps and they are very friendly. They are such a calm gentle breed. I have buffs too.
