    I am offering anotehr pair of bantam chocolate orpington chicks. These are pure english birds from the Rob Boyde lines, not crossed with any american birds.

    These chicks have been vaccinated for mareks. Shipping is a flat $55.00 for box and express mail service. They are around 6-8 weeks of age now. If your State requires additional testing to legally ship the bird, you will be responsible for those charges also. I cannot ship to Virginia. Of course I am NPIP certified and AI clean. Payment with postal money order or cashier's check please. Local pickup is also available.

    The cockerel is 3 lb 12oz and the pullet is 2 lb 10 oz that I am breeding with.

    This pair will ship later than my other auctions as the male is a bit younger than the female and is pretty naked.....

    Just wanted to make a comment. I just saw a eBay auction for choc orp eggs. There are some pictures of the breeder birds shown. One of the hens/pullets appears to have split wing.

    This is why people should buy from someone who has bred birds for more than a couple minutes.........

    I cannot guarantee that the chicks won't have some kind of defect as they mature, but I won't be breeding birds that have noticeable defects to begin with!
