This Chocolate Orpington is suppose to be a bantam but this is no small bird, the roosters are weighing inat 5 pounds and hens are 2 1/2 to 3 pounds. Kids have tried showing this bird as a bantam and are told by judges that it is not a bantam. The Chocolate Orpingtion is an import from Europe and still rather rare in the US. The Chocolate Orpington is a calm bird, the roosters are very sweet, clowny acting birds, so cute. The hens feathering drapes down around their little brown feet, they look as though they float when walking. The Chocolate Orpington is a very friendly bird that make good pets and work well as backyard chickens. The coloring of this breed is a Hershey's chocolate brown, their beak and feet are also brown. You have to see it with your own eyes to really appreciate it, pictures can't capture it's beauty. They lay a medium to small size egg.
