sweet, curious little birds. two of my four first birds are orps, and i'm happy that i got them. got 2 easter eggers too. all of them are nice, non aggressive, but the ee's are slightly more weary of people. none will automatically just come up and get on my lap like others have said, but if i catch them and set them there and pet them, they don't fight it. they like being close to me outside in the yard all the time, but still at an arm's length.
