I just ordered a lavender orpington cockerel. Very excited to have him. We have a dozen or so really cool breeds this go around and think he will be a neat addition. I'd like to hear from you if you have experience with a lav orp. They came highly recommended for roosters if you have kids, which we do, a 3 and 6 year old. Can I see some pics of your lav orps? And this might sound like a silly question but when he fertilizes an egg and we hatched them they would be some kind of mutt right? Like a cross btw a lav orp and say a polish tophat.
