Description:

Check out these all black orpingtons! The chicks you will receive will be all black and if you breed them together, they will produce 50% split, 25% black, and 25% lavender offspring. If you breed the lavenders together, you will have 100% Lavender Orpington chicks.

They are a large, loosely-feathered bird with an upright stance and a medium-sized single comb. Orpington's are adored for their good nature and willingness to be handled. These will be some of the friendliest birds in your whole flock and will be great for households with children which is why we consider them one of the best breeds for beginners.

Hens lay three to four, light brown eggs a week. Average weight of roosters is 8.5 pounds and hens is 7 pounds.
