    i can not for the life of me decide what color English orpingtons I want.

    We've had bbs and jubilees in the past.

    I am getting ready to purchase my hatching eggs next month and it's been a battle of the wills to pick a variety and stick with it!

    What's your favorite color/pattern?!
    Help me make a decision please

    Hello,

    I am no expert...I never had them...But I would suggest the Lavender, maybe?
    They are pretty birds. I have the Buff Orpingtons, they are nice, but if you want a colorful breed, I wouldn't suggest them 100%...Maybe 50%...Not 100% (Buff.)

    Good luck finding your right breed!
