    Hello, I've been looking for show quality orpingtons. Is there anyone out there that could sell me a nice juvenile Orpington pullet. Most colors I will take but I like buff orpingtons the most. Thanks

    the surest way to buy a show quality pullet is to go to a decent size show and try to purchase one of the birds that place in the show. You could get told by many people that their birds are show quality, but actually receiving one may be different. In show birds, we hatch out a bunch and cull down to a few that are outstanding. As far as purchasing, your almost always purchasing the breeders culls. They might be good culls, but their still not their best birds. Some breeders show them and after big shows, just sell their birds because they don't want to take a chance of bringing any potential diseases home with them. We were able to purchase the APA Nationals best of variety white orpington cock from Terry Disney last year. We have a bunch of white orps that I feel will do well. Wish I could say the same for my buffs. My line throws good cockerels but my pullets are lacking.
