Housing Buff Orpingtons

We keep our Orpingtons in pens with large outside pens in the spring to Autumn months, they look great in this environment and are easier to pen than many other breeds due to their heavy build they require relatively low fencing to keep them enclosed, of course they have got a fox proof house for at night.  Our show birds are reared indoors on sunny days as the sun can bleach their feathers and give them an uneven apppearence which is undesirable for a show bird but they do have the opportunity to go outside on duller days.
