    I have just started out with chickens and have learned so much on this site. Bought 2 batches of eggs on ebay and noticed a big difference in the quality of chicks...I contacted the breeder of the better chicks and ordered some live chicks. Would like to find a some other breeders that possibly show as well. I like any of the LF type, I currently have lavender, black, blue and one buff. Thanks!

    Try the United Orpington Club, there is no breeders list you may have to contact the Secretary for someone near you.

    She has been breeding poultry for over 50 years. Top quality. I just drool over dragonlady's Buff Orpingtons!

    Seconding this recommendation. I'm fairly certain these are the best Orpingtons in the country right now.
