This Chocolate Orpington is a bantam but this is no small bird, the roosters are weighing in at 4 1/2 to 5 pounds and hens are 2 1/2 to 3 pounds. The Chocolate Orpingtion is an import from Europe. This is a very rare breed, you can search the internet and find very few farms that have this beautiful bird. 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 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.
