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.

    Ordered 5 of these chicks in June of 2023. Received an extra, 4 of the 6 were males and 2 were female. Not a bad ratio for straight run, I’m just happy I ended up with two females. One of the hens is pretty petite at 5llbs but the others definitely lived up to the size of the breed. I kept 2 of the 4 roosters and they are gorgeous. All of the chicks I received grew up to be very friendly and I will be ordering them again.

    These orpingtons are “OK”. I read in the description that the males reach 15 lbs so I bought a few (straight runs) to add some more meat to my flocks’ genes. Cackle sent me 1 male and 2 females. The male is definitely the largest of his age group. But these three are by far the slowest to develop socially. They just cower in the corner, won’t roost on their own, and if given a choice would rather be in a cage instead of free ranging with the flock. One of the females has a serious scissor beak. It really doesn’t seem to affect her ability to eat or drink as she is the same size as the other female, and is actually the most confident of the three. Cackle refunded me for this one.

    I ordered 20 chicks, the 10 I got which are these are lively. I just wish they would of called when they couldn’t fill my order because I wouldn’t of paid $30 in shipping for 10 birds…

    Prettier and fluffier than the pictures show. Love them.

    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.
