    I am going to be selling Russian Orloff eggs. $20 a dozen plus shipping. Buyer pays shipping. I will add extra eggs if they are laid the day of shipping. The reason these are so cheap is due to the fact I am not hatching and need to move these eggs. The rooster is a spangled rooster. Chicks should be gorgeous.

    Just post below/ or send me a private message and I will get back with you. Thank you!

    NPIP Clean farm.

    I keep sanitary conditions, my motto for my pens is "if I cant live in it, neither should my birds." My pens are cleaned weekly. Some eggs may become soiled due to the girls running into the nest without wiping their feet off first. ;)

    These are limited availability. Get them while they are still here! :)

    Your rooster that is in your pictures is not by any means a Russian orloff. Orloffs do not have single combs and they always have muffs your rooster has a single comb not a walnut comb like orloffs have. You should take this post down or reword it in the title since they will be getting crossbreds. Your hens look correct though.

    that is correct, your rooster is not a Russian Orloff. Please look at the pictures below of a pure Russian Orloff Rooster.

    Definitely not purebred Russian Orloff rooster.
    The hens look like Mahogany Russian Orloff (MRO), but are lacking a quality beard.
    Much time and effort has been spent, by many, to bring back this wonderful breed and we can not afford setbacks by crossbred birds being sold as purebred.
    I am sure you were offering what you thought were purebred birds for sale and in no way meant to mislead anyone.

    The purpose of this group is to unite Russian Orloff enthusiasts across the USA and Canada. By collaborating as a group, we will be able to work on adopting a Standard of Perfection for the Large Fowl. The main goal is recognition and acceptance of Large Fowl Russian Orloff by the American Poultry Association (APA), and to bring the Russian Orloff out of critically endangered status. Just as important, is bringing the Bantam Russian Orloff back in strength by promoting and showing. Our purpose as a group is to adopt a Standard of Perfection for the Large Fowl Russian Orloff, Breed to Standard, Promote the breed (both Large Fowl and Bantam) to include showing, continued effort on perfecting the breed, and tracking the Russian Orloff Population through our Orloff Tracking Map.

    The hens look like they are possibly mahogany Orloffs and he's using a spangled something {Sussex?] to get the spangling in there. Spangling, like mottling, isn't dominant so the offspring might not be spangled but the combs and legs and muffs should all be. The single comb is recessive under a pea so the chicks will look pretty close to right... not knowing ears and eyes too well by picture anyway. These are not going to be pure Orloffs. He wouldn't be the first to try something like this. The birds resulting, while not pure, might still fit most of the characteristics. How about correct the ad so it doesn't say they are pure heritage Orloffs but Orloff project birds?
