All our hens are between 5-8 months old and just reaching their laying age. Hens can lay for up to 4-5 years before they stop all together. Hens need up to 14 hours of sunlight to lay. Artificial lighting can be added to keep hens laying through the winter months when the sunlight is less. Fun fact - hens are born with an exact number of eggs she will lay in her life time, so even if she stops laying through the winter months, that just means she will be laying that much longer before she stops.
Lavender Orpington Chickens are a true beauty and rarity. Lavender, also known as “self-blue” are not like your typical blue chickens. Lavender Orpingtons will breed true and all of the offspring will be the Lavender color. Orpingtons are large and fluffy clean legged chickens. They are super docile and great with children, making them one of the best options for your backyard family flock. They lay 3-4 lightly tinted, almost pink eggs each week. Lavender Orpington Chickens lay 175 - 200 lightly tinted eggs per year and are considered a sustainable heritage breed.
