White Orpingtons

white orpingtons“Like the Buffs, the White Orpingtons thrive best where the soil is light and sandy. They are great favourites and whether kept in confinement or given a free range they regularly fill the egg basket with tinted eggs. For the table they are excellent birds, having white flesh and legs. Orpingtons are not particularly good foragers and the chickens are rather slow in developing, but both varieties combine most of the qualities required in a dual purpose fowl.”
