The blue orpington comes in various shades of blue with a distinct black lacing on the feathers. A large, beautiful bird that has become one of my favorites. The black shows beautiful green sheen as the bird matures. The Splash can also come in various colors ranging from a light blue to white with darker splashes of color throughout. A truly breathtaking bird at maturity.
