    I have three Lavender Orpington hens. They are not laying anymore as far as I know. They are fully feathered and very nice looking. The oldest one enjoys sitting on your lap or being held. I can take them to auction but it tugs a little bit so I thought I would try BYC first. :) I am in Lanc. Cty.

    Wish I would have found this thread sooner. Was just down that way on Friday. We live in East Central PA just south of Hazleton.

    They are still here. I didn't get them to an auction yesterday because of scheduling conflicts. Will you be getting down this way again?

    I would be happy to take in your hens, I could meet you half way as I am in Knoxville Maryland. Are they not laying because of winter? Or because of age?

    Most likely they were not laying because of age. Unfortunately, I just took them to a small animal auction on Tuesday of this week.
