The Orpington is a chicken breed named after Orpington, England, made famous in part by this breed. Belonging to the English origin, the buff orpington was bred to be an excellent layer with good meat quality. Their large size and soft appearance together with their rich color and gentle contours make them very attractive, and as such its popularity has grown as a show bird rather than a utility breed. They go broody very often, and make great mothers.

Being rather heavy, the buff orpington chickens are able to fly small distances and rarely do, so they work well as backyard birds. Due to their build they do well in very cold climates.

The Buff Orpington has a heavy, broad body with a low stance, and the down from their body covers most of their legs. Buff Orpington chickens lay about 175 to 200 medium to large light-brown eggs a year. They do not stop laying in the winter.

As always, we welcome you to browse our hens for sale to find the backyard chickens you're looking for!
