    My buff orp Goldie has definitely lived up to the stereotype of her breed...sweet, calm, friendly, and quite the comedian. I was wondering if this personality is specific to just Buff Orpingtons or if all types of Orpingtons are like this? With my next flock I'd like to try different breeds, and considered a Lavender Orpington. Can I expect the same demeanor?

    I would say yes, although each bird has their own quirks.

    The Buff and Lavender just refers to the color so to my way of thinking, the color isn't the demeanor determination as much as the breed (Orpington) is.
