Plymouth rocks or orpingtons?

I've heard their both great layers. My plymouth rock mix is a great layer. I have buff orpingtons coming with my order from ideal because of all the good feedback I've read about them on this site!
You guys are no help at all. Ill just have to keep them both!
According to Henderson's chicken chart:

Rocks and Orps are about equal in egg-laying capacity, which is to say, they're both only average shakes at it but lay a nice brown egg. That matches my personal experience as well, although in egg size, generally, the Orps win, IMO, which differs a bit from the chart. Rocks may lay just a smidge more frequently because Orps go broody more on average. Not a lot of difference, though. They're both nice breeds.
