    I bought some lavender Orpingtons in February. They were around 5 months old. The gal told me they were english lavenders. I have some black english orpingtons and a white english orpington, but my lavenders don't seem to have the same body type. Their tails are more pointy than my English birds, so it just made me curious. [​IMG]

    American... most Lav Orps are American, but there are some English Lav Orps around...

    Agreed. You'll rarely find English Lavendar Orpingtons. They could be part English, like 25%-50% but not 100% for sure.
