    [​IMG] I have new hatchlings! RIRxCochin $2 each (7 available) or make offer on all 7. [​IMG]

    Blue Orpington Pair 4 wk old. $12 for BYC members....I do have another pullet to make this a trio....and might be persuaded for a good offer/trade. These are standards.

    No shipping on these babies.

    Do you mean a breeding pair? I'd love to find two or three more Orpingtons, and blue is a cool color, but we need hens, not a rooster.

    Does "no shipping" mean you would prefer not to ship them? I'm in North Carolina. And what are "standards"?

    I'm new can you tell? We have an Orpington and a Silkie, and a hen house awaiting more roomates.

    I hope SunChick doesn't mind me butting in here. Yes, she means a breeding pair with a cockerel and pullet. And standards mean full(large) size, not bantam chickens. She'll have to answer for herself on the shipping.

    Don't mind at all SpeckledHen! You are like the spokes-chick on Blue Orpingtons.

    I won't ship the birds. I am not comfortable doing that, not to mention the paperwork. Maybe in a year or two when I have had more time to research the whole shipping thing.

    Now if I road-trip to NC in the future...stopping and bringing them up is a possibility, but I dont' see that happening anytime soon.

    SunChick, you flatter me! There are others who have been breeding the Blue Orpingtons longer than I. I'm just getting started. I guess I'm just the only one who takes thousands of pictures of mine, LOL.

    Hi SunChick,

    I am in Myakka City, Florida and my husband and I want to start a flock. We are interested in the Orpingtons and Rhode Island Reds.

    Are your Orpingtons still available?

    I don't know much about the Cochins. We are planting a vineyard and want some large birds to help keep the grubs and bugs down as well as supplying eggs. We want pets, not animals to eat. A nice temprament would be good.

    Any suggestions on breeds?
