This Chick Pack includes some of the rarest English Orpington chicks on the planet! Orpingtons became one of the most popular farm fowls in this country soon after they were introduced to the US from England in the late 1800's. Hens are sweet, gentle, docile birds, usually ranging from 7 to 8 pounds. Quiet and stately, they're seldom prone to flying once they've reached their full weight. The males tend to be gentle and make good roosters for the backyard flock. Hens are good layers all year round, even into winter, producing large brown eggs steadily right through the coldest weather. Plus, Orpingtons are among the best setters and mothers.
Your order will include a minimum of 3 different colors from the following list--but our breeder will include more if possible!
- Chocolate Cuckoo
- Lemon Cuckoo
- Black Mottled
- Blue/Black/Splash Partridge
- Silver Laced
- Gold Laced
SEXING: These assortments are straight run chicks, meaning
they will not be separated into males and females, and therefore you
will receive both. If you need only males, only females, or specific
quantities of each, please choose from our Day Old Baby Chicks category. SHIPPING: Free USPS Express Mail Shipping is included in your purchase.
VACCINES: We do not vaccinate our Chick Packs™.
