Buff Orpingtons have rich golden buff plumage. They are a heavy dual purpose fowl for the production of both meat and eggs. Wilco recommends raising Buff Orpingtons for heritage poultry meat.
Buff Orpingtons are large, stately birds of quiet disposition and are easy to dress for the table. They are white skinned, plump and juicy; a beautiful eating bird. Buff Orpingtons heavy and full plumage make them excellent winter layers that continue shelling out brown eggs right through the cold weather.
