Orpington chickens are big, friendly birds great for laying and meat. One of the most popular permaculture breeds, Orpingtons are the only way to go for many homesteaders!

The lavender or “self blue” color is a rare and beautiful color that hatches true with every bird. Orpingtons lay 190 eggs per year with a light brown colored shell.

    Hi, just wanted to let you know how the hatching went. Had 5 to hatch (ordered a half dozen). The 5 that hatch is beautiful and sweet. Thank you for making my momma happy. ❤

    I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the eggs that I received and the hatch rate! I have ordered hatching eggs from other places and could immediately tell that the ones that I received from Better with Thyme were a step above.

    We had 22 of 24 eggs make it to hatch day and of those, 18 hatched. Thank you!

    This was our second order with you guys. The first one didn’t have any to hatch, our fault with cheap incubator. But this second one we have 6 out of 8 hatched. Needless to say we are super excited. Thank you for the beautiful chicks.

    Such a wonderful experience for our family for our first time hatching eggs! We plan on expanding our flock and will only get our hatching eggs from you. Thank you!

    Thank you so much, I had all but two out of 16 eggs hatch. I think that is fantastic for mail order. So many times I have ordered hatching eggs from other companies only to be disappointed in a low or no hatch. I will definitely buy from you again…I am super impressed! Thank you for taking extra care right from the beginning. Your eggs were put in my super bator along with 40 others. Attached is a video of babies and their adopted moms…my girls are so sweet and loving. 😍

    I ordered 6 eggs and received 8 eggs well packed and in great condition. 7 of the eggs hatched and we have beautiful, healthy baby Lavender Orpington Chicks!
    It was a great experience for my grand children to watch the chicks hatch. We love our baby chicks! Thank you Better With Thyme for providing such unique
    Breeds. The pictures of your chickens are beautiful. We will enjoy watching our chicks mature.

    I have enjoyed the experience and all the eggs hatched beautifully! I struggled to find some of the unique breeds that you offer, so it was great to not only find the breeds, but to find such a great chickens as well! Ordered silkies and lavender orpingtons, incubated 8 and all 8 hatched!
