 The beautiful Orpingtons became one of the most popular farm fowls in this country soon after  they were introduced to the US from England in the late 1800’s. They are sweet, gentle, beautiful birds in the heavy breed class, ranging from 7 to 8 pounds, and a great favorite with families and children. Quiet and stately, they’re seldom prone to flying once they have reached their full weight. The males are usually gentle and make good roosters for the backyard flock. Hens are good layers all year round, even into winter, producing large brown eggs steadily right through the coldest weather.

The fluffy Orpingtons are some of the best setters and mothers, too (and the golden, fuzzy chicks are adorably just what we think of when we picture baby chicks!). The docile Buff Orpington has been one of the most popular varieties for years and years with their glistening golden plumage and pinkish white skin.
