    I love Orpingtons and I own 2 dozen.
    Red, Buff(gold) & Chocolate
    I am currently looking for Red cuckoos.
    I plan to add Jubilees, Cuckoo & Spangled now through next Spring.
    I do want my collection of sweethearts to be around 4 dozen of spangled and cuckoos and will hold there. My short term goal is to add to my Orpingtons from sources other than I have. Mid term goal is to acquire cuckoos and Spangled orpingtons only working towards one thing my long term goal which I will reveal much later.
    I love chocolate with anything and everything.
    I dream in color.
    I dont put up with mean or fake people.

    Nice! I'm just setting up my coop and I want Orps, too! Though on a much smaller scale.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You have ambitious plans and I hope they will be realized.
    I am a big fan of chocolate and lavender orps. Would love to see photos of your birds.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Wow! That's an impressive collection of Orpingtons you have. I only have Buff Opringtons in my flock, but they are wonderful hens; hardy, friendly and gentle, and good layers of large, brown eggs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your Orpingtons.
