BBS Orpingtons

Orpingtons are a big, fluffy dual purpose bird. 

They're winter-hardy, friendly with people, and make good mothers. They lay light brown eggs.  

Chicks are sold straight run for colors (blue, black or splash).

See color chart on next column.

I cannot guarantee what colors you will get to fill your order.

I have been working hard to breed my Orpingtons towards standard. I am going on my 5th generation. I strive to follow the standard for the breed, and breed only the best I have. My Orpingtons are my favorite breeds to be around.

Note: BBS stands for Black/Blue/Splash.

 These are the 3 different colors of the single line.

Black is the base color, but the blues carry a dilute gene, and splash carry 2 copies of the dilute gene. The splash will appear white with blue or black flecks.

Black x Black = 100% black chicks.

Black x Blue = 50% black, 50% blue chicks

Black x Splash = 100% blue chicks

Blue x Blue - 50% blue, 25% black, 25% splash

Blue x Splash = 50% blue, 50% splash

Splash x Splash = 100% splash chicks
