The Orpington is the ideal choice for beginners looking to add a friendly companion to their flock. Renowned for their pet-like, docile nature, these sizeable and curvy birds boast loose, fluffy feathers. Handling them is a breeze – they often enjoy the attention! While hens are known to go broody, they are excellent layers of brown eggs and make exceptional mothers.
'Lacing' in chicken plumage refers to a delicate edging or outlining of one color on each feather, creating a distinct and intricate pattern. Chocolate Laced Gold Wyandottes have a Golden base feather color, with a warm brown outline around each feather.
