Photo above show some of our very own prized Black Orpington birds.
More photos below show some of our past POL pullets whom have now joined our breeding group!
We rate this beautiful friendly, large docile breed very highly as do many others whom own them. They are one of our most popular breeds, and are very highly sought after. Therefore due to such high demand, more often than not we do have a waiting list, so the sooner you order our Orpington pullets the better the chance you will have to be next in line for our top quality birds.
As well as being one of our most favourite breeds, we have also have found them to be one of the most gentle and docile of breeds, making them great pets and egg layers alike for those whom delight in owning them.
Their eggs are a tinted - pink - brown colour and they can be expected to lay upwards of 230 eggs in their first years.
They are generally a very good forager, a large dual purpose bird that are greatly desired not only for their looks, but also for their easy going nature, not to mention their egg laying, and meat value.
They are big round & very fluffy to the point of disguising their lovely dark gray legs & they are far too heavy to even consider flying once fully mature!
We also keep this breed in white, buff, and blue.
We would not be without all our gorgeous Orpingtons here
at Harrisville Heritage, and we give them a full 5 star rating as we feel they greatly deserve it as a wonderful breed !
