    Any breed, including the Buff Orpington, is a good breed to show as long as it meets APA standards.

    The APA is the American Poultry Association, which is the US organization that officially recognizes the different breeds and determines the desired characteristics of that breed and what flaws constitute a disqualification in show birds. You can find their online site at http://www.amerpoultryassn.com/.
