    Hello All,

    Im in Northern Alberta and have raised birds for the last 5 years got started with my daughters 4H projects and have had a few different breeds from white leghorns, RI reds, Wyandotte's and my faves Orps. I currently have Black, Blue, and Splash Orpington's.

    Im looking to add Gold and Silver Laced Orpingtons....I would like to buy a trio of both breeds if possible or at least some hatching eggs Can anyone help?? Willing to pay for shipping and any paper work needed if out of province...

    Thanks in advance

    Tim
