Breed Details:
Qualities; The Orpington has many enthusiasts and is a familiar bird at almost every show. They are freindly chickens that are very soon "trained to the hand" when taken good care of. Appearance; Orpingtons are very big, weigh between 3 and 4kg and even look larger becuase of their full plumage. Utility; Orpingtons can be expected to lay around 200 large eggs in a good laying year. And because of their size they make very good meat birds. My Own Experience; Orpingtons are my favourite breed of chicken! I love them. They are gentle giants to your garden. Thanks for reading :)
