Description:

We finally have Blue Orpingtons! We've been asking you which new breeds you'd like us to carry, and this one tops your list. All Orpingtons are gentle, sweet, hardy birds, and good layers too. This one has beautiful, slate blue plumage and is quite rare. Our quantities are very limited, so we recommend you reserve yours quickly!

PLEASE NOTE:
The color blue does not hatch "true" in chickens. Blue is a diluting gene for black. So, 50% of our Blue Orpingtons will hatch blue, and 25% will be black. The last 25% will be "splash," having received two diluting genes. Splash is a very light color, pale blue or white with "splashes" of black and darker blue in the feathers, especially in the wings and tail. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN YOU ORDER! Not all of your blues will actually be blue!

Product Features:

* We can ship as few as three baby chicks! Our minimums are based on your zip code, and how long the USPS tells us it will take for your order to arrive at your post office. The longer they tell us it will take, the higher your minimum. Find out your minimum chick order

* Any order of 15+ chicks ships via USPS Priority Mail service, and 3-14 chicks ship via USPS Express Mail.
Why we use the USPS

* We offer Marek's vaccinations on all standard (large fowl) chicks, and you'll have the opportunity to select that during the checkout process.

* Baby chicks have special needs including heat of about 95* the first week of life! Read more, here
