Mottled Lavender Orpingtons


Apr 30, 2020
These babes are the sweetest. Straight run. Hoping for some pullets! I've never had such friendly chicks. One of them rushes out of the brooder and runs right up to my lap every time.

I've been told orps are hard to sex...or to sex by comb...or that pullets get their tail feathers So many ways ;)

Anyone see a gender jumping out at you yet? I am hoping for one rooster out of the bunch. They are 3 weeks old.

We are new chick “parents” and have 2 LO’s and 3 barred rock chicks. Although the BR’s are a week older and twice their size they all get along, even sleeping on each other! One of the LO’s started out sickly,Nellie, but we worked with her giving her electrolytes and vitamins and she looks healthy now.
I wasn't planning on getting any more chicks right away but these kind of fell in my lap..and I've always wanted orps! I've heard they are really docile sweet birds. So far that seems true to the ones I have.
