The lavender color is similar to the blue color but is lighter in general and with purple overtones. Lavender Orpingtons are extremely rare, and not many people have laid eyes on a Lavender Orpington. They could be categorized as designer chickens, and are fabulous for poultry connoisseurs and collectors as well as for flock owners who want a truly special breed.

Lavender Orpingtons have pretty, single red combs, which are set off beautifully against the lavender feathering, which is usually a bit darker on the head. These would look especially striking combined with Buff Orpingtons - creating a flock of silver and gold big fluffy birds.

The Orpington Chicken breed is one of the premier breeds of Great Britain. The breed was developed by William Cook by crossing Minorca males with Black Plymouth Rock hens and then breeding the offspring of that cross to Langshans with clean legs. The outcome was the Orpington with everything that the British public of the mid-nineteenth century wanted and desired in a chicken. He named them after his hometown, Orpington, England. The breed was a wild success, and within 10 years, Orpington Chickens were a mainstay of British poultry enthusiasts.

Orpington Chickens were brought over to America at the turn of the century, where they caused great excitement at the American poultry shows and secured their place in American flocks to this day.
