    Hi everyone. I am new to orpingtons and was just wondering what breeding line is your favorite for the breed?

    I'm not into shows, so I'm certain no expert on the APA's standard of perfection, but I've raised Buff Orpingtons for years and like the ones bred by Dunlap Hatchery (http://dunlaphatchery.net/), which is a smaller, family-owned and operated hatchery. Their BOs have always been, beautiful, healthy, and very good layers.
