Chocolate Mottled Orpington

The Orpington is a British breed of chicken. It was bred in the late nineteenth century by William Cook of Orpington, Kent in south-east England. Our Chocolate Mottled Orpingtons originated from UK imported stock. Some of those old birds still live on the farm today! The UK style Orpington is much different than the typical American bred Orpington. They are larger, fluffier and a bit more mellow. This particular color is in a rich, Hershey colored chocolate with white flowers similar to a Speckled Sussex.
