Blue Orpington Chicks

Blue Orpington Chickens are very calm, quiet and affectionate, like their buff-colored counterpart. Orpingtons are a dual-purpose breed but are often kept for their pet-like qualities. They are also loosely feathered and look bigger than they actually are. Meyer Hatchery's Blue Orpingtons are the American strain. 

Blue Orpington Chickens are a slate blue color with dark lacing. Hens tend to go broody and make excellent mothers. They are cold hardy and lay more than 200 brown eggs per year!  

Average weight: roosters 8½ lbs., hens 8 lbs

* Due to limited availability of this color, the order maximum is 8

* As with other “blue” breeds, the trait does not breed true. In addition to blue, you may receive splash and/or black as well. Chick color is hatchery choice.
