I can't believe it!!! I thought the closest lavender orpington breeders were in Augusta Georgia a hundred miles or so away. Otherwise the majority of them I knew of were in WA and OR. BUT, by pure coincidence while I was at work at Tractor Supply the other day I was talking to a chicken person and the tld me what they breed... amongst the many uncommon chicken and pheasant breeds LAVENDER ORPINGTONS!!! aaaaannnnnd they have one 3 month-old trio left! Getting them next week, I am so excited! Just had to vent!
