English Blue Black & Splash Orpington Eggs 1 dozen


Booking orders for Spring 2024 Shipment

One Dozen plus 2 extra



Orpingtons originated in the 1850s by poultry breeder William Cook. He was a leader in the poultry world at that time, he owned a store and sold poultry products and he wrote two books on keeping poultry, “The Poultry Journal” and “The Poultry Keeper’s Account Book. In addition, he held public forums and spoke on chickens to share his knowledge about poultry. The breed’s name came from the village that Cook lived in, known as Orpington, in Kent, England. Cook bred the first black orpington as a new breed and introduced them in 1886 at Chrystal Palace Poultry show, a very prominent poultry show in the 1800s.


Our English BBS Orpingtons are beautiful robust birds, yet so calm and gentle, rarely fuss when picked or moved. Our breeding pen is a pen that will hatch blue, black and splash colors. There will likely be more blue and spalsh chicks vs black chicks. We have no control over the quantity of a specific color that will hatch and will ship accordingly.


Eggs are shipped in egg shipping foam for safe delivery. Each dozen ordered includes two extra eggs in case of breakage, which rarely happens, for a total of 14 eggs.
