Orpington mixed colour breeding pen: Cuckoo, Black, Cuckoo Lavender and Lavender
We are using a rare English Cuckoo Orpington rooster over our Lavender and Cuckoo Lavender hens for 2020. Therefore, you will get Cuckoo, Black, Lavender and Cuckoo Lavender chicks hatching in your orders. These chicks are large, friendly, vigorous and they have a stronger gene pool. I will be posting more pictures soon.
We also have Jubilee Orpingtons (see our Rare & Fancy Breeds page)
Our Orpington chickens are a combination of US lines and stock from the Greendale farm in BC. These chickens are huge easy going birds that are beautiful, mild mannered and easy keepers. The Orpington is a breed of chicken named after the town of Orpington, Kent, in south-east England. Orpingtons are a popular dual-purpose heritage breed. Because they are loosely feathered, they appear to be heavier than their true weights, their plumage makes them cold hardy and excellent layer of brown eggs even in the winter.
They have a good growth rate, excellent table-quality and excellent egg production. Orpingtons have quiet dispositions and they make amazing mothers. They are first-rate layers of large light to dark brown eggs. Orpingtons lay about 175 to 200 large light-brown eggs a year. Standard APA Weights: Rooster 10 lbs, Hen 8 lbs, Cockerel 8.5 lbs, Pullet 7 lbs.
