    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for some blue/black/splash Orpington chicks - all female! I hatched some of these guys a couple of months ago, four of them hatched, but three of them are boys! Unfortunately I can't keep any roosters due to where I live, so I'm looking to replace the three. Good, healthy, quality bloodlines are important :) I'm located in Somers, CT - either shipping or local pickup is fine!
    I would be willing to pay up to $7 per chick

    Thanks [​IMG]

    There's a poster here named Littleblue that usually has Orpington chicks, but they're sold as straight run. You should PM her.

    Thanks for the reply :) I actually need the chicks to be all female though, otherwise I would just hatch the chicks myself [​IMG]

    I can't find many breeders that sex their chicks. Unless of course they are autosexed. Sunnysideupmicrofarm.com has reasonably priced chicks. They are on here as well,but I think under a different name. Also most breeders expect a minimum of 15 chicks to be bought. I've always had good luck selling Cockerels on Craigslist. There is also a site called rarebreedauctions.com. That you can auction them off....if there isn't a local small animal auction around. Good luck!

    You can't sex day old Orps.. at least I certainly can't... Mine are usually 3 to 4 weeks old before I can make an educated guess as to their sex. I sell day old straight run for 15 each.. price goes up after I have to take care of them for that long and sex them for you too.

    We can't sex day old Orps either... They just look super fluffy! We have English BBS Orps at $10 a chick - we do ship but our minimum is 10 to ship.
