    10 straight run Lavender Orpington chicks. These are project still, but showing great promise. I've put in just a "touch" of English so the resulting chicks should be nice & "fluffy" with good type.
    All my adults are wide bodied, have good type and are the friendliest chickens I have ever owned, bar none! I am increasing my home flock even if they will be egg layers only. I love to look at them, and they lay about as well as my leghorns...which seems almost impossible, but I have loads of eggs & chicks to attest to that! LOL

    If the winner would like to pick up the chicks at the NE Poultry Congress January 14th or 15, that is ok.
    Otherwise, the shipping with box & heat pack is $40. I will send extras.

    Note: this shipping will depend on the weather here in the North East. As long as its above freezing, they are good to ship with heat packs.

    If you have questions, please Pm me. I'm happy to talk chicken!

    I can't get your web-site to work, do you have a picture of the parent stock?

    I don't have good close up photos, but the outstanding thing about them is their depth & breadth of body. Big, Big birds.

    Quote:Good question....I bought mine from 2 different sources last year. I know that one source who is local added some English so she has had them for a while, and the other I got them from Rockinnpaints who was selling them here.
