Visitors Policy :  ~We do not allow visitors to our breeding facility, no exceptions~
We appreciate the interest folks have in our poultry operation. However, we take the health of our birds very seriously.  
We have taken that extra step to become part of the NPIP certification program and operate a closed facility to help
prevent the introduction of disease.

With the recent Newcastle and Avian Influenza precautions we are no longer allowing any visits to the poultry part of our
operation. We are doing our best to try to promote good bio-security.

Thanks for your understanding in our willingness to take part in these program for the health and welfare of our birds.
**PLEASE NOTE**  We currently DO NOT ship chicks to
AK, SD and Hawaii
due to strict state regulations, special permits, red tape, and expense.   Sorry!

After raising poultry for more than 20 years, in 2012 we got the opportunity to import the lovely Orpington from England.  The chicks and their offspring now make
up most of our breeding pens.  We have learned and continue to learn about these birds, their colors and genetics.  They are among the most beautiful birds we have ever
raised.   We would like to provide you with as much information as possible prior to placing your order to help you decide which birds may be right for you.   We have compiled
breed information about each particular variety on their page.  
Please take a moment to review the variety information pages prior to ordering to learn more about the English Orpingtons.

Welcome to Gisbrechts Imported
Orpingtons at TheFancyChick.com.   We
are a  small family owned and operated
farm in Northern Ohio.    Our site is
devoted almost exclusively to the  
beautiful English Orpington.  Although
we have raised poultry for more than
two decades, over the  past few years we  
have devoted much of our time and
energy to the Orpingtons.  We find
tranquility just watching these beautiful
birds.  We  use our site to share with our
readers information that we acquire
along our journey of breeding and
raising these incredible birds.    With
the varieties now available, creating
new colors is nearly limitless.    We will
try to keep our site updated with new
and exciting colors that we will be
adding.     Proceed with CAUTION as
these stunning creatures can be habit
forming!  We hope you find your trip to
our website informational as well as
enjoyable!
