The one on the left is of a British Orpington. The right was Reserve Breed, Crossroads of America Joint National.
Over a year ago I stated that the UK and American Orpingtons were different breeds.
We acquired a Lemon Cuckoo British Orpington on January 2, 2012. She will be mated to our Greenfire male. We will also be exhibiting them this year as British Orpingtons so folks can see first hand the differences. What would it hurt to show these for what they are? Will post photos as soon as we can. This pullet is an import herself.
