    I was given two chickens that are supposed to be Lavender Orpingtons. However, they look nothing like the Lavender Orpingtons that show up when you search on Google. Can anyone confirm whether they are in fact Lavender Orpingtons? Meet Woosie and Lavender.

    They are not solid lavender. They are either blue or lavender Columbian, I can't quite tell from the picture. I am not sure if they are pure Orpington, they should have white legs.

    I'm not sure what color their legs would be called. I'm new to the whole backyard chicken thing.

    In other words, they are some sort of project chicken? Thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it. [​IMG]

    X2 on keesmom's post.
    Your birds have "slate" legs.
