The Orpingtons were developed in the 1880’s. The Buff Orpington is a popular breed with a beautiful golden buff plumage. The Buff is a large, friendly bird and is a back-yard favorite. They are also one of the most broody of the heritage breeds and are excellent mothers. They mature to around 6 pounds and will start laying large brown eggs at about 6 months. Our pullets are not debeaked, so they can easily free range. All our birds are fed a non-GMO feed, and will generally be 8-12 weeks old at the time of arrival.
