Baby Chicks: Chocolate Orpington
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
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, so we recommend them as one of the best breeds for beginners.
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.
Currently, we are only offering sexed female chicks for sale. Male and straight-run chicks are not available.
