Red Orpington Chickens

OVERVIEW

blankThis breeding pen began with a trio purchased from Bob Follows in spring 2011 together with hens from our original breeding stock.We have since strengthened the group by selecting some of the best of our offspring from the last few years.

Red Orpingtons are also one of the more prolific layers among the breed,which may be to do with the possible use of Sussex and Rhode Island Reds in the creation of the colour.The desired colour for red is a very deep mahogany with as as little if any black showing.However most cockerels will show a small amount of black in the tail feathers as there is a very fine line between keeping them dark red and allowing the colour to dilute over generations to a much lighter shade of red.
