Blue/Black Orpington - Day Old Chicks

Blue/Black Orpington - Day Old Chicks

Minimum Order on Chicks

Mix and match to build your flock. We require a minimum order of FIVE birds to ship but you can pick any five chickens to complete your order.

 

Breed: Blue/Black Orpington

 

APA: Recognized varieties – Black, Buff and White.

 

Egg Color: Light Brown

 

Egg Production: 3/week

 

Breed Facts: Known as gentle, sweet, durable birds they are one of the best choices for first time chicken owners. The blue plumage is a deep blue. Splash is a light body color with black and blue speckles throughout.

 

Blue chickens do not breed true and our pairing produces approximately 25% black chicks, 50% blue chicks and 25% splash chicks. We sell these in a blue/black/splash mixed lot. Upon request we can try to remove the splash but at a day old sometimes its hard to tell blue from black so please note this is sold as a mixed lot.

 

We feed our animals only the best chemical free certified organic feed.

Sexed

Our Orpingtons are sold as "Straight Run" which means we do not know what the sex is at the time of hatch.

 

  • Shipping Chicks

    We ship day old chicks on Monday through Wednesday, depending on destination and hatch time. It is our goal to be as transparent as possible when accepting orders by listing in stock seperately from pre-order. We fill all orders in the order received and will note in each listing if the lead time is more than 4-6 weeks out.

    Day old chicks are shipped via USPS Priority Mail Express. Orders must be picked up at the post office the day they arrive.

    We are unable to ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or Rhode Island.
