    Yesterday I went and picked up three Lavender Orpington babies, plus seven hatching eggs that were set under my broody.

    I absolutely love Orpingtons and now I've got Buffs, Lemon Cuckoos and Lavenders!

    I feel so fortunate to have the space I do. These Lavenders have been on my wish list for a couple of years and I am so excited to finally have them [​IMG]

    What a pretty chick! Do they stay that color through adulthood?

    I saw the parents and some older chicks who had feathered out and they really were quite purple. They had nice Orpington type, too. I am so "eggcited" to watch these babies mature.
