    Hello! I just had a couple of questions about orpington's: 1: I have noticed that some orps are fluffier then others? Why? 2: Where can I purchase some fluffy orps? 3: What is the website for Bamachicken?

    Oh and if you have any different colored orps, such as lavender, blue, white, splash, crele .PLEASE pm me and let me know! I love these little beauties!

    Thanks so much![​IMG]

    The quality of the bird and its breeding have alot to do with their general appearance. While I am no expert I believe that you should buy the best that you can afford. I have seen many English imported birds seem to look stocky and full feathered. Mine are five months and as they are maturing they are looking quite fluffy. Orpingtons are great birds![​IMG]

    Quote:Not yet as I amnot breeding this year. I do have some Lavs in the incubator right now but don't know what I'll have or keep yet. I still don't have a buff or white and especially want a Jubliee. I saw some huge birds at the Poultry show in Frankfort KY last week. Going to try to get chicks from that breeder.
