Description:

Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the tickets! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements.

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!

Due to the genetics of the blue plumage color, these BBS Orpingtons will hatch out with plumages of Blue, Black, or Splash (a white or pale color with "splashes" of darker grey or black feathers as seen in the photo). When breeding blue to blue, you end up with a mix of 50% blue, 25% black and 25% splash.

All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are vaccinated for Marek's and MG (killed). Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
