Buff Orpington Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts
*Heritage Breed

 

Buff Orpington Chicken Information:

Buff Orpington Chickens originated in England, and was recognized by America as a pure chicken breed in 1901.  These "Golden Chicken Beauties" are a large, stately chicken of a quiet disposition. Buff Orpington chickens are one of the best chickens for eggs and for chicken meat. They are white skinned, plump, and juicy for a great dressed out eating meat chicken.  The Buff Orpington  is one of the best chickens for sale online of dual egg and meat purposes . Many will put their 2 year old chickens in the stew pot and retain the 1 year old hens for laying eggs. Then buy more baby chicks for sale from Cackle Hatchery to keep the cycle going. This accomplishes the most efficient feed ratio and cost to raise chickens.  Most chicken breed charts will list the Buff Orpington chicken as a dual purpose bird. Most chicken egg charts will list the Buff Orpington chicken with a medium brown egg. Even though the Buff Orpington chicken becomes a very heavy and large bird, this does not always mean the bigger the hen the larger the egg. There are a lot of smaller type hen breeds that lay a larger egg. Now as a plus the buff orpington makes for an  excellent egg setters and mothers for baby chicks.  Raising free range chickens is always best if you can keep away the predators and we hope you enjoy the Buff Orpington chicken as much as we do.
