    Are all Orpingtons breeds equally as friendly as the Buff Orpington? I want to add Jubilee and Blue Gold Orpingtons to my flock but am wondering is they are as friendly as the Buff Orps? Temperament is very important to me.

    Yeah, Orphingtons are usually docile regardless of type. Buff just happens to be the most common kind. I too am looking for different kinds of orphingtons, right now just got the Buffs, Lavenders/Blue look really pretty.
