    Meet my newest flock addition- this little chick will be spending the Alaskan winter with me in the house next to the woodstove. [​IMG][​IMG]

    What a cutie, and she's such a pretty color! Is she your only chick?

    Yes it is the only chick. I saw an ad that someone local had just hatched Lavender Orpintons and was like why not? I think it's actually a rooster, but I love him all the same.

    I want some lavender Orpingtons. I'm thinking about getting some but I have to wait until next year because all the hatcheries that offer them are not hatching right now :( and no where local to me have any. Your very lucky about your beautiful baby!!

    I had a Lavender Orpington that turned out to be a Rooster :( He went back to the breeder and got his own flock. He was handsome...
