Does anyone know where I can find show quality buff orpingtons? It’s winter right now so I want to hold off until spring, but after googling it and can’t find anyone!

If you’re in the US or Canada, you may consider a hatchery. If you’re in the UK or Europe, Googling should bring up large scale private breeders. Not sure about other parts of the world.

@aleksgill, there is an Orpington Breeders club:
https://www.unitedorpingtonclub.com/

Also, anyone who ships chicks is required to be NPIP. You can search the NPIP database here: http://www.poultryimprovement.org/statesContent.cfm

NC has 25 pages. The site uses stock codes. Use the "find" function on your computer to enter the code you are interested in and it will find any instances in the state document.

Here are the stock codes for Orpington:

W indicates Bantam sized chickens

Unfortunately, I did not find any Buff Orpingtons listed in NC, but you can search other states.

Now is actually the time to start trying to contact breeders if you're wanting show birds. If you wait until spring, you might be too late.

I'd contact the Orpington Club and see what they say.
