Originating from England, the Buff Orpington is a large chicken breed that is prized for its size and egg production. This dual-purpose breed makes for great backyard chickens as well as pets because of their docile nature and enjoyment of human companionship. Because of their size, they are one of the best chickens to use for meat as well. If you are looking to raise your own, Buff Orpington hens often go broody making them great at mothering chicks. The annual egg production for these hens is roughly 200 to 280 medium size brown eggs per hen. When fully matured, roosters will weigh an average of 10 pounds and hens will weigh an average of 8 pounds. The average lifespan of the Buff Orpington is 9 years. Buff Orpingtons are an APA recognized breed & are shown in the English Class. We at Valley Hatchery guarantee all of our Buff Orpington chickens for sale are happy and healthy.
