Our chocolate Orpington chicken breeding group will now be creating F7 birds. In spring 2011 we purchased a split cockerel from Ramsley Orpington’s and ran him over three David Pownall black hens and a Ramsley chocolate hen to give us our own chocolate cockerels. We have since run a chocolate cockerel over black hens to continue improving the size of thes birds.
The birds we bred last year are very large with good ‘type’ and deep, clean chocolate colour feathering.
