The Orpington is a breed that originated in England. The first variety was the Black with the Buff and Whites being next and finally the Blue which came from crossing the Black and White. The APA only recognizes these 4 Varieties though you can find Orpingtons in Rainbows of colors.
The orpington is a massive bodied dual purposed breed who's size should not be disguised by excessive fluff. They should both appear and feel massive when picked up. They are a docile breed and good layers.
We breed both the Blacks and Buff and have had tremendous success going Champion English several times and Champion Large fowl.
