    Does anyone know anything about the White Orp eggs that are on Ebay? I would love to have some White Orps, but I don't want them if they're poor quality. [​IMG]

    I looked at 2 white orp auctions on ebay and they look good to me, but I'm no expert. They are all white with no off-white feathers.

    I don't know anything about the ebay auctions but I have A white orp Rooster He is 24 weeks old He came from Sandhill and is supposed to be a very good quality. I think he is just beautiful if you would like to see a picture of him I could post it for you. I also have a hen.

    What's the auction listing? I know there is a white orp seller on there showing pics of birds from the UK..so who knows what their birds look like. [​IMG]

    I went back on Ebay and looked and the auction had ended, but I've seen it on there several times. I can't remember where the seller is located, either. The pic always shows someone holding a huge white roo. Oh well, I really don't need to be hatching anything else right now anyway. I'm just a sucker for Orps!!! If the seller posts again I'll ask again and see if anyone knows anything. . .

    I won a white orpington auction on ebay recently from coops-coups. I am incubating the eggs right now (on day 11 - 7 eggs total...all arrived in good condition and are developing nicely so far). I can let you know how it goes if you like....

    That would be great, Z! Thanks [​IMG]

    Of course, you are going to post pics so we can all be exceedingly jealous, right?? [​IMG]

    Ok. I went back on Ebay and the Orp eggs I've been seeing are from Coups Coops, just like yours, Z chickens. I'm watching your post to see how your hatch goes. . .
