The Buff Orpingtons...

The Orpington are a heritage breed that existed before modern industrial meat and egg production, originating in Kent, United Kingdom in the late 1800's. The Orpington has been renowned as one of the most attractive chickens with its rich colours and soft contours and have become more and more popular in the show bird category. They are big, gentle chickens that respond well to attention, are non-aggressive and enjoy handling, making them a good bird for families. They do well in cold climates, but can also tolerate heat if they are given plenty of shade and cold water during the hottest part of the day. An Orpington hen lays 200 to 280 large brown eggs per year and also lay well through frosty winters and dark, short days. Our family of Buff Orpingtons consist of Arthur and Victor, the roosters and Elizabeth, Mary, Gwenevere and Boudicca, our girls. They are from an excellent bloodline of past show winners including a UK bloodline that was imported by AVGEN in 2016. Our breeding program will begin soon and will be available to purchase.
