    Hard to give you an opinion on price when you didn't list a price.

    Lavender Orpingtons are still a project bird and really aren't that rare anymore.

    What is it exactly that you're asking? I'm guessing that you ordered some chicks and now want to know if you got a fair price? You would need to provide some details of your purchase for anyone to give you feedback on it.

    What are you bidding on? Eggs or chicks? if the post says only 1000 in the us they are wrong! I did a search on eggs (saved fav) and over 10 are listed just on eBay. They are nice but if it is $5 an egg you are wasting money. There is a good breeder here that offers lavenders And they are no where near that price

    Ps if it is that for a shipped live chick that changes everything it is expensive to ship live chicks
     
  7. Hi! I'd suggest you give them chick starter and fresh water and keep their brooder at 95 degrees the first week.
    Good luck!
