Buff Orpington Chickens are a beautiful and popular chicken breed for their dual-purpose utility and overall pleasant demeanor. The Orpington breed is particularly known for its hardiness during the winter months, continually laying eggs in cold weather. This plump, white skinned bird also dresses extremely well and yields fair amounts of tender juicy meat.

These birds are moderately early maturing and will begin to lay medium to large brown eggs around 24 weeks. A great thing about Buff Orpingtons is that they easily adapt to many different environments. They may be raised as free range chickens and are also very adaptable to confinement due to their docile temperament. Orpingtons are known to be quite friendly and will make pleasant pets in addition to their typical farm functionality, but when exposed to other breeds of chicken they do tend to be bullied.

Their beautiful buff colored plumage and large stately form is an attraction to many chicken breeders interested in showing their birds. Their attractive appearance and hardy nature make the Buff Orpington an excellent dual-purpose breed for the farm or the backyard.

don't know what went wrong May 23, 2014
Reviewer: Lorraine Cottle from Goffstown, NH United States  
Hi,   We ordered six hatching eggs which should have hatched on late mon. early tues. of this week, it is now thursday, and nothing has hatched.  We aren't sure what went wrong or if we should give up.  The only hitch we ran into, was an overnight where we returned to school and the temp in the incubator was a little over 80 degrees.  I quickly got it back up to 100, (  not sure what happened, but we did remove the egg turner earlier that day )  Could an overnight of 80 degree temps cause them not to hatch?  When should give up on them?  

Hello Lorraine,

First, I would like to thank you for your review. Hatching eggs is a delicate process and requires very exact temperatures while incubating. That over night drop of 20 degrees would have drastically reduced the expected hatch rate, especially at early stages in incubation. I'm sorry to hear your class did not get to experience the magic of hatching eggs, but this is also an important lesson for your students to learn.

Harry, CSR

Broken eggs May 12, 2014
Reviewer: Erin Leary from Campbell, CA United States  
4 of the Buff Orpington or Black Australopr (brown eggs) arrived cracked and broken.  As a result, I am only incubating 9 eggs.  This was pretty disappointing.

On most egg shipments, eFowl.com will include extra eggs of the same product, to ensure the customer receives at least the number of eggs he/she has ordered and paid for. In the event that the customer receives fewer intact eggs that he/she has ordered and paid for, the customer will be entitled to compensation for the cost of those eggs.
