INFORMATION ABOUT BLUE CHICKS: The color blue does not breed true. The chicks hatched from these chickens can be blue, black, or splash. You will receive hatchery choice colors when ordering. Read more about blue genetics in our Help Desk Article.

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!
