Granny's gone and done it again - Page 1430

post #14291 of 42276

The Jubilee Orpington was created to commemorate the Diamond
  Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
The Jubilee feather pattern is a very complex color and can take
up to 18 months to finish. The feather shaft should be a dark mahogany with a
clear black band, finished with a white tip at the end (called the pearl).

These birds are big compared to the
standard chicken; it is not unheard of for a rooster to weigh in at 14 lbs +.
Given their size they are still one of the most docile of all

  breeds.

 

Your feed bills are going to go up there Granny   LOL

The Orpington is a breed of chicken named after the town of Orpington, Kent, in south-east England,[3]:115 which was made famous in part by this breed. It was bred to be an excellent layer with good meat quality.[3]:115 Its large size and soft appearance together with its rich colour and gentle contours make it very attractive, and as such its popularity has grown as a show bird rather than a utility breed. Hens often become broody and are good mothers. Although rather heavy, they are able to fly small distances but rarely do so.[4]:158

 

Orpingtons lay about 175 to 200[4]:158 medium to large[3]:115 light-brown eggs a year.

It was said that at one time Orpingtons were capable of laying as many as 340[3]:115 eggs per year. This decline in production was due to breeders selecting for looks over utility.[6]:98
