    I thought this was a nice little piece of history for those of us who love orpingtons.

    What a neat piece of history. Do you think those were the first Orps in the USA? And oh, how wonderful would it be to live in a time when some pretty chickens arriving on a boat would be feature news!

    That is a fantastic piece of history. Thank you for sharing with us. Buff Hooligan, you are right on when you say that some fine chickens arriving by boat is headline news. How wonderful would it be to live in an era that that simplicity is the norm. Makes all the chaos that goes on around us seem so ridiculous. Thanks again Prissy.
