    There are 2 sellers on eBay. I bought from coups-coup they are pretty, but definately not up to APA standard. I hatched 7 out of 7. The legs are yellow and should be more white. The feathers are truly white, but the eyes are blue-green. They are only about 8 weeks old now and are a bit more excitable than my buff orpington is...but I got her as an adult. The juv BO was excitable, but now that she started to lay is very calm now...wants me to pet her. Go under poultry then search for White orpington under buy-it now is another seller. He says his legs are white. I've never bought from him before. I am looking for good whites too.

    I purchased from the same person on Ebay also, and yes the legs are yellow. I should have researched a little more I guess. What color are the eyes suppose to be? Is it possible these are not Orpingtons or just not up to standard. Guess I am still looking for some also but will wait until the weather warms a little.

    McMurray Hatchery has white orps. Maybe you can just wait and order some chicks from them. Ive been satisfied with the quality Ive gotten from them in general.
