    So the ones with a little yellow are the whites...
    8 whites
    3 blue
    2 black mixed wyandottes (blue orp rooXslw hen)


    the whites have blue/slate legs which worries me.
    These came from Gilman Farms in VA.

    Wow! They ARE really cute. I am new to chicks too and I also have 4 BO, 4 RIR, and 4 BR. The Orpingtons are also my favorite so far (they are all only 8 weeks old). They are the largest, prettiest, most feathered and most friendly of my group. I knew that there were White Orpingtons but I've never heard of Blue Orpingtons. Do all Orps have similar dispositions? Are Blue Orps the same size as the buffs and are they winter hardy too?

    I'm really happy for you. Did you hatch them yourself or did you order them? Good luck!
