    So I will be bidding on some eggs of BYC very soon, and im getting orpingtons, but im wondering if I should bid on the 8+ lavender black split orpington eggs, or the 8+ just lavender, I was going for just lavender, but I would go for either one.... Which one should I bid on? What would you bid on? (takeing any advice here!) Im very new to chickens and dont know much about colors? thanks!

    X2. It depends on if you want some black orpingtons too.
