    i am in the process of breeding for blue australorps using blue or splash orpingtons into black austras. i purchased orp eggs in jan. the hatch produced "0" blue females, and only 1 female splash orp.
    so my breeding pen is quite limited.

    anyone out there with any blue eggs?

    i have some good black astra eggs to trade if that is an option.

    please PM OR e-mail me

    There is a member who has blue australorps, but I can't remember their name. Have you tried doing a search?

    I have some beautiful blue austrolorps but they are only 3 months old. If you haven't gotten what you want by Christmas or first of year let me know. My problem is that only one is hen and three roosters. I have a black hen that should be carrying the gene but not sure I'll breed her.

    yep, it always seems to work out that the males will be the dominant number in a hatch, guess its a natural selection to make sure there is plenty of them for insemination.

    that was my problem with my blue orpington hatch:(

    thank you for your reply, i may call on you, sure appreciate you!
    good luck with your blues!
