These are 100% PURE English Chocolate Orpingtons. We have worked very diligently over the past year to add to our flock and increase our gene pool. We are proud to say that we now have the most diverse genetic line of chocolates of any breeders! We have line from the two top importers in the US - plus our own imported line of chocolates from Orpingtons Galore AND we have breed these lines together to create our own line of chocolates - plus we have used imported blacks from Orpingtons Galore to help in the color. Orpingtons Galore Chocolate Bantams were smaller than the two prior Chocolate Bantams here in the U.S. Theses will be smaller an average weight for hen is 4 lbs and a rooster is 6 lbs.
These are 100% pure English Chocolate Orpingtons and are not splits, crosses or mixes of any kind!! The offspring of these birds will produce 100% pure English Chocolate Orpingtons.
**BEWARE THAT BREEDERS WILL BREED ENGLISH CHOCOLATE ORPINGTONS BACK TO AMERICAN STANDARD BLACK BANTAMS. THE END RESULT WILL BE A BIRD THAT DOES HAVE THE CHOCOLATE COLOR - BUT DOES NOT EXHIBIT THE 'FLUFFY' LOOK NOR THE BEAUTY OF A PURE ENGLISH CHOCOLATE ORPINGTON. WE BREED BACK TO IMPORTED ENGLISH BLACK ORPINGTONS TO MAINTAIN OUR COLOR.**
Our flock is strictly feed Purina Feed along with Oyster Grit and other vitamins to insure a healthy flock. Our coup is 100% covered, heated roosts, padded nests, lighted pens, automated 100 Micron filtered waterer and feeder to provide the upmost comfort to our birds. We believe a happy and healthy bird lays the best quality eggs which in turn produce healthy chicks.
Unlike the other hatching eggs that you might see listed on various other sites, we can assure you our flock is NPIP, given the best feed/vitamins, received filtered water, and are nurtured in a coop that we proudly say creates the most pampered environment for our birds. People who visit the farm are amazed at the detail and the expense in creating such a Taj Mahal for our birds – but we are proud of our birds and want our customers to receive the highest quality bird available. The beauty and statue of these birds are simply amazing!
