Lavender Orpington ×

4 incubating chicks survived the power outage & hatched last week. Lavender Orpington × a Heritage Breed lavender-colored hen. The hen is a heavier, sturdy meat bird.

Chick's colorings have attributes of minorca, langshan & barred rock chicks - not surprising. Yellow bibs, bellies, wing tips & yellow near the eyes, rest of body is a black or dark grey-black. A couple have the male barred-rock type yellow spots on their heads. Legs have black & yellow in them - similar to a barred rock female chick. Black upper beaks, pale lower beaks. My guess is 2 pullets, 2 cockerels.

They are very sturdy, fast-growing & affectionate little chicks. It will be interesting to see what they're like as they get older.


Buff Orpingtons, Lavender Orpington, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, and a few mixies.
