These 100% pure English Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons. These are not splits and are double barred English Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons from two unrelated blood lines. The birds are simply beautiful with their white bars against their bright lemon yellow feathers. They make a great addition to anyone looking for that eye catching chicken that is sure to turn heads in the backyard or on a spacious farm.
The English Lemon Cuckoo Orpington are a rare breed of large fowl chicken that display gorgeous feathers that appear to 'puff' out from their body and give the birds a 'fluffy' appearance. Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons that are derived from multiple hatches from a Split Lemon Cuckoo Orpington origin do not always display the look of the 'fluffy' English style appearance. These were not project birds from a split, but rather English Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons where the hen and rooster were imports.
****BEWARE THAT BREEDERS ARE BREEDING ENGLISH LEMON CUCKOO ORPINGTONS BACK TO U.S.A. STANDARD BUFF ORPINGTONS. FROM THAT SPLIT YOU CAN CREATE YOUR PURE LEMON CUCKOO ORPINGTONS, THE END RESULT WILL BE A BIRD THAT DOES HAVE THE CUCKOO COLOR - BUT DOES NOT HAVE THE 'FLUFFY' LOOK NOR THE BEAUTY OF A PURE ENGLISH LEMON CUCKOO ORPINGTON. ***
* THE LEMON CUCKOO ORPINGTON CHICKS ARE SOLD STRAIGHT RUN AND WILL BE BETWEEN 5 DAYS AND 20 DAYS OLD DEPENDING ON ROTATION *
