    I have made the decision to start a new breeding flock, but I'm
    torn between two breeds Jubilee Orpingtons or Vorwerk. I only have room
    for one small enough flock. I want them for showing them and their offspring
    and in Ireland where I live I heard they're pretty rare so breed conservation is also an aspect.
    I was hoping yous could help me choose.
    Thanks.[​IMG]

    I agree. Orpingtons are one of the best breeds around. I've raised them for years (along with dozens of other breeds) and they are very cold hardy, friendly and gentle (my children, and now my granddaughter, made lap pets of ours), and good layers of large, brown eggs. Cheers.
