Orpington is a bird was originally bred for its excellent laying and good meat qualities. Their large size and soft appearance together with their rich colour and gentle contours make them very attractive, and as such its popularity has grown as a show bird and utility breed in South Africa. They go broody very often, and make great mothers. Being rather heavy, they are unable to fly so they work well as backyard birds. Due to their build they do well in very cold climates. The fluff of their feathers allows rain water to penetrate their feathers, so they must be kept out of the rain. For better viewing click on image to enlarge
