Description:New for 2022! Everyone needs a little more chocolate in their life! Orpingtons are the only way to go for many small farms and homesteaders. These beautiful, rare Orpingtons will grow into large birds that are gentle and friendly. They are steady layers that produce light or medium brown eggs. Orpington chickens are cold-hardy due to their fluffy plumage. They make wonderful mothers and often do go broody.
* The minimum order of day-old chicks shipped to Rhode Island is 12 due to Rhode Island state law.

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.
