English Buff Orpingtons

 

 

William Cook had already created the Black Orpington as a utility bird but as the demand for meat birds grew, but there was a need for a light skinned table bird and work began on the Buff Orpington.

 

Buff Orpingtons were created around 1890 by first crossing a Gold Spangled Hamburg with a Buff Cochin. The offspring were then crossed with a Dark Dorking and finally crossed back to a Buff Cochin.

 

Buff Orpingtons are now bred as much for their looks and temperament as for their egg laying capabilities. A healthy Buff Orpington hen should lay 150 – 200 eggs per year and achieve a weight of between 8-10lbs and a cock bird should achieve a weight of between 10-12lbs.
