Delaware Orpington Chickens

OVERVIEW

delaware orpington in pencilThe Delaware Orpington  is yet another colour carried over to Orpingtons by the now retired Bob Follows.

We purchased our breeding group from Keiths Orps in Berkshire.The bird has a white plumage with columbian neck markings and light black barring to the wings,tail and ends of the hackles.This colour is the result of the barring gene over white columbian.

The columbian genes are responsible for the neck and tail markings which give this bird its distinguishing features and the barring gene characteristics apply to this colour.
