Pros: Extremely handsome bird, Very Hardy
Cons: Sterotypical Chicken
I have no actual cons for the Orpington. I own one Orpingotn rooster. He's the big bird on the farm. He protects and cares for everyone. He's a great rooster and he's won several shows and as even been asked to use as stud. Orpingtons are those birds you almost always see on the farm, and I thinks it's because of how hardy and good looking they are.
