    Hi, I am looking to start a breeding farm. i have owned chickens for two years, and have ben hatching mix matched chicks for about 4 months. I am looking for those rare heavy sort of breeds, the rare ones, rare colors, breeds, lineage, etc. I am prepparing to get some Bev Davis Line Black Copper Marans, and some smooth feathered Seramas. My hobbying is getting a bit boring. I have a coop prepped in 3 separate runs, for 3 separate breeds. I have a high up rabbit hutch for the Seramas, and I plan on keeping four of my mixed bred laying hens, but separate from all of the other breeds. So I am prepared to get EEs, BCMs, and then _____. I don't know what to get, I had a list down to Wheaten Marans, Blue Copper Marans, Corination Sussexes, Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons, and Lavender Orpingtons. (I am up for any other ideas of rare breeds or colors that people are desperately looking for.) I have mainly chosen the Lavender Orpingtons, Bt don't know where to get them. Please, Any one out there, I live in VA, If you do to and you breed Lavender Orpingtons, I am looking to buy some and am willing to drive there, but if you are a breeder out of state, i might be able to accept shipping.
    Thankyou,
    Savannah

    We have been working with the Lavendar Orpington for years - We have hatching eggs available now on BST auction for both Lavendar Orpingtons as well as Split Lavendar/black orpingtons.

    We will also do custom hatches if you prefer. Please pm me for the details. Thanks and have a blessed day! Nancy

    I'm selling the entire flock of Lav Orpington's 1 roo 4 pullets and 2 split pullets all 5-6 months old too big to ship so they would need to be picked up but it could make a nice mini vacation [​IMG] won't be long before the ladies will be laying.Can throw in 2 black chicks as well still not sure what they are though.

    Nancy (bargain) has wonderful Lavender Orps. I received 1 dozen bbs orps and 1 dozen Lavender Orps and I have 15 Healthy chicks in my brooder! I had 10 bbs Orps hatch and 5 Lavender orps. I am very pleased with the hatch with her shipped eggs! With other shipped eggs I hatched 6 out of 24 eggs with one and 9 out of 24 with different person. 15 chicks is wonderful for 24 shipped eggs! Thanks Nancy!
