Orpingtons are an excellent starter bird for those looking for a general-purpose chicken. Their calm, pet-like disposition makes them an ideal fit for the novice flock owner. They have a very low and broad body giving them a curvy, fluffy appearance. They are beautiful buff color and will lay lots of nice brown eggs. They make wonderful fryers and roasters.
