    Where did you order them from? They could be lavender orpingtons from the looks of them, although I cannot make out what kind of comb they have. Also, just to let you know, it's orpington, not orphington :) They're named after the town they originated in, which is Orpington, Kent.

    They certainly look like lavenders. If any develop darker blue rims to the feathers, then those are blue orpingtons however. Lavender is sometimes also called 'self blue' because it is similar to blue (typically lighter) and a solid shade. From the pics they look like lavs but keep watching the feathers that come in.
