Pros: Calm, friendly, good family bird
Cons: None I can think of
We have three Orpingtons, one Blue Orpington hen, one Blue Orpington rooster and one Blue/Buff Orpington rooster. We've had to separate the Blue rooster from the Blue/Buff rooster as they started fighting. The Blue/Buff rooster is gorgeous, he loves taking care of his mixed flock of seven hens. I really like their personalities (except for the Blue rooster who has decided that I am his enemy - this is after I nursed him back to health after almost dying this past summer! Up until then he was a wonderful guy too.) I would definitely get Orpington's again!
