Description

Cackle Hatchery® is pleased to offer rare Silver Laced English Orpington. The first English Orpington were created by William Cook in the 1800s. The two original color varieties were all black and all white. The black-and-white silver laced variety is a recent development, created by British Master Breeder and poultry judge Bob Follows.

Defining characteristics of the English Orpington include a deep, broad body with a short back, small head with a medium-size single comb.  They also have a low stance, and fluffy feathers that give the breed its large, round appearance. The fluffed-out plumage also makes them especially cold hardy. They are incredibly docile and are excellent around children. The hens can be expected to lay up to 180 eggs per year and do sometimes go broody.

Cackle Hatchery® has been breeding Silver Laced English Orpington since 2017. Our bloodlines are 100% English, with the round body type characteristic of English Orpington. Even though they are not yet recognized by the American Poultry Association, the Silver Laced English Orpington would make a unique addition to your backyard flock.

    We purchased 3 female silver laced english orpingtons along with other breeds for a total of 20 birds shipped with extras. Only lost 1 out of the whole box before it arrived with a hatch date of April 7th they arrived on the 9th. Our girls are 24weeks now, healthy and have nice thick fluffy feathers getting ready for winter. They are sweet and get along well with the rest of our flock. Love how pretty they are.
