Name: Lavender Orpingtons
Color: Lavender
Description: DAY OLD CHICKS

We are taking prepaid orders for chicks to hatch in the spring.
Chicks for mail order need to be in multiples of 25. This ensures sufficient body heat for the chicks to survive their journey. Feel free to mix and match smaller quantities of the different breeds. But, the total number of chicks ordered must equal 25, 50, 75 or 100.

***Day old Lavender Orpington chicks

Pick up at the farm for a smaller prepaid hatch is also available.

Chicks are shipped weekly on Mondays or Tuesdays. Unfortunately, we cannot provide estimates as to when your chicks will ship. All orders will be filled in the order they are received. You will be contacted via phone when your chicks ship. That will give you 24-48 hours notice. If you have any "black out" dates, indicate them in the "Notes" section during check out and we will not ship your order those weeks.

Please confirm your order via email or by phone.
Please include your name, address and phone number in the email.
It is up to our hens and how they are laying during that time. Orders are filled on a first come first serve basis. Ordering early will greatly increase your chances of receiving your chicks during the week requested. Day old poultry is shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays. You will receive email confirmation when your order is shipped.


Ameraucana Hatching eggs --- None available for the 2017 season.

IMPORTANT: We do not, under any circumstance, guarantee that your eggs will hatch! Many factors beyond our control may contribute to incubation success or failure.

PLEASE NOTE: Hatching eggs are shipped as soon as they are available. We will let you know when our hens are able to fill your order and when they will be shipped. Certain breeds are in high demand and may be sold out for weeks or perhaps months. Please be patient and know that every effort is being made to fill your order just as quickly as possible.
Info: The Orpington breed is a fair layer of light brown eggs. They are a dual-purpose fowl producing a heavy carcuss. While their feathers are broad and full, they have a light fluffy appearance against their full deep body. These are docile birds that do well in both free range and confinement conditions. The hens do go broody and are excellent mothers. This bird is a very cold hardy breed and mature quickly. The Orpington was admitted to the A.P.A. in 1902 and only the black, blue, buff, and white are currently recognized.

We obtained our hatching eggs to start our stock from Hinkjc Mountain Poultry and from Buddy Henry's line.
