Orpingtons lay about 250 medium to large light-brown eggs a year. They are quiet, easy to manage and cold hardy. Buff Orpingtons are excellent mothers, doing a great job of brooding their own eggs. They will also occasionally hatch eggs from other mothers that you place beneath them. The roosters of this breed are unique, as they are known to be highly protective – and in some cases, they will sit on the nests themselves to give the hens a break!
