    Oh no I'm not sure! I paid 30 for her as a pullet. Not that that means anything:/ I bought her from a local trusted breeder. Should I ask him before I price her?

    Hello!
    I purchased some chocolate Orpington hatching eggs from someone I found on BYC and I'm just not sure if they are indeed chocolate Orpington eggs. Can anyone explain to me what they look like? Are they very large, are they dark brown light brown, etc. Even better if you have a picture could you post it?
    The eggs I received were cream colored, very small, about the size of a phoenix egg and not much bigger than a quail egg. I just want to make sure I got what I purchased because they were very expensive. It was interesting also because I purchased 18 eggs and one hatched.
    Thank you for the help!
