    Thanks

    Superior Farms has them listed. They are spendy, tho, and the min is 25 chicks (straight run only).

    I know hinkjc has a few Black and black split to Lavender Orphs for sale. Others have blue black and splash orphs for sale. Bamachicken a member on this board has a pen of pure black orphs also.
    Here is Hinkjc's post about the chicks

    I love orphs even though I don't have any good luck with your search,

    Are you looking for bantam or standard? I have a pair of black/blue bantams available.

    I'm in Huntington, WV. He's not too noisy. He crows in the morning, but that's about the only time I hear him.
